Replace the Facebook Like Box plugin with the Facebook Page Plugin (#1992) #2237
Facebook is deprecating the Facebook Like Box on June 23rd (see https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/like-box-for-pages).
The only option to keep supporting this popular widget is to upgrade to the Facebook page plugin (see https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/page-plugin). Facebook recently made it so that the page plugin can be displayed down to widths of 180 which means many many more themes can support the widget.
This PR does the upgrade, removes settings that no longer work (like color scheme) and add an option for showing stream posts.
Apparently If you do not manually upgrade the Page Plugin (which this PR does), the Like Box plugin implementation will automatically fall back to the Page Plugin on June 23rd 2015. Assuming this is correct, if we can get this merged in for 2.6 we should be OK - but if there is an earlier point release that could be good too.
I'll implement these changes on the WordPress.com side as well.
