    Hello,

    I am testing three days the likejacking with the new Confirm problem that Facebook puts.

    When i put the script in a new domain and boost it a little, after a few minutes Facebook put the Confirm button.

    I tested in 5 different domains and after that i put the like button visible as usual to a new domain again. Again, after some minutes i get blocked my the "Confirm" button.

    I cant understand exactly what facebook tracks and block my domains. Maybe my server's IP or the pages which i boost the website..


    Has anyone know something more specific?

    I noticed this problem by today, from when there is this problem?
    Any way to avoid this?

    If you like a REAL FAN PAGE it works.

    Also, real fan page likes through the like box don't show up on one's wall.

    Don't know which algorithm they use to ban sites... Try google.com, millions of likes and still no confirm button...

    Of course google will not get a Confirm button never!

    Maybe if you use fbml code instead of iframe it catches you faster?

    Yes I know, so that's why they must have some sort of bans on sites. No matter whether FBML/iframe.

    Yes it is not true about 100 likes. I run a viral yesterday which has now 950 likes. It is iframe like button so that's why i said if there is any difference with the fbml way..

    Ok, v2lethal is not 100% wrong about the 'Confirm' button on facebook externals after 100 likes.

    From our testing, it all depends on how fast traffic is sent to the page and how fast the likes come in.

    You could have 100 likes or 10,000 likes, as long as it is say within 5 minutes. (not 100% certain) After steady likes appear, this when facebook ads this confirm button.

    We have noticed also, on very rare occasions within the past 3 days that we stumbled accross a couple of externals that did not have the Confirm button. The two things they had in common were 1) the like button was also visible on the page as well as hidden and 2) the domain was very generic and not keyword targeted.

    The best thing that you can do is keep on experimenting with domain extentions and names, scripts and type of coding until you find out the root factors causing the confirm button.

    good luck to all, and if you have any other information on this and a possible work around or if you believe I may be wrong about anything that I have written; please do inbox me.

    But recent news article on BBC or whatever will get much more traffic that our sites and still retain the button... So they will have some kind of trust score as well?
