    In my opinion: Share is better. Like is easier.

    When someone shares a link, it will be posted on their friend's "newsfeed" notifying others of what the individual is sharing. However, many people might not want to "share" your site/article/etc, especially if it's something that might be embarassing/personal/etc. Like would be a lot easier, but can only go so far.

    Hope my $0.02 helps.

    Share is much more viral.

    Share tends to reach a larger audience.

    However FB Edgerank scores you on likes, comments, shares, engagement with post, negative feedback, #poll answers.

    So im my opinion and experience you should try different post types to keep edgerank happy. A good egderank will provide you will good and consistent traffic in no time.

    If it was an instant burt of traffic to the page you wanted, shares are probably the best.
