I've implemented the gem. While the tweet button is working really well and the Like button is rendering, I don't believe that the Like button is working at all. I saw on the page (http://whoo.ps/2013/02/24/digital-salt) that it had accumulated a few Likes but there's no evidence on Facebook that anyone Liked it. If I like it myself and add text to the post it doesn't appear on Facebook.

It's possible that I have not set up my Facebook app correctly, as none of the options listed here actually seem appropriate. I've chosen "Website with Facebook Login" as it seems the most appropriate, but I don't have any "login" on my site.
