For discussion:

The Facebook Like Widget links the widget title to the Facebook page (opening in the same window).

An user in http://wordpress.org/support/topic/jetpack-facebook-like-box-title-link-opens-in-the-same-window?replies=1 is asking to be able to open in a different window.

The majority of the widgets I've used do not have the title linked to anything. Should we continue linking the widget title?

I just submitted #1366, that would be a nice way for site owners to either customize or remove the link, if we don't want to remove that link altogether.

Once the PR is merged, one could force the link to open in a new window like so:

function jeherve_custom_fb_title( $likebox_widget_title, $title, $page_url ) {

        $blank_link = '<a href="' . esc_url( $page_url ) . '" target="_blank">' . esc_html( $title ) . '</a>';

        return $blank_link;
add_filter( 'jetpack_facebook_likebox_title', 'jeherve_custom_fb_title', 10, 3 );
