⚠️ Deprecation notice
February 2020: Facebook’s Open Graph API no longer exposes the data necessary for this plugin to function, so I’m winding it down and archiving the repo. Something like SharedCount is probably what you need.
Huge on Facebook
Huge On Facebook is a jQuery plugin to display the number of Facebook "Likes" for any given list of links.
The plugin will traverse through a batch of links, fetch Open Graph data for each URL, and output a new element containing the number of "likes" for each URL.
The plugin can additionally be set to display that number only if it's above a certain threshold, and to optionally add a class .HugeOnFacebook to each link—depending on how popular that link is. You get to decide how many shares is enough to bother showing your website visitor.
