    Whats the difference between like or share? Which one is more likely to generate more traffic virally?

    I'm a bit confused on that part.

    share is better .
    Like will show as - xxxxx likes "your website/page"
    and share will show an image, it's just more visible...

    Previously if you liked a LINK it didnt get shared on the wall.

    Now it does. so practically there is no difference between a like and a share.

    Uhm...I'll try to explain you :)

    In my opinion Like it's better, however:

    Like:
    1) If you like an internal page, on the wall of the user you'll only see a simple link;
    2) If you like an external page, on the wall of the user you'll see image, description and title.
    3) Like is made with just a click.
    4) If your external page get too likes very fast, they will ban your website (by resetting likes for example or by insert a "Confirm Like").

    Share:
    1) The user need to click 2 "elements" to share;
    2) If you Share an external page, on the wall of the user you'll see image, description and title.
    3) If you Share an internal page, on the wall of the user you'll see image, description and title.
    4) In my opinion is more safe than like (if you get a lot of share it's a bit more difficult that they'll ban your website, however: Fast share = Ban)

    Let me know if you have some questions!
