    Share widget gives 35k for http://www.boredpanda.com

    https://www.facebook.com/v2.8/plugi...ount&locale=en_US&mobile_iframe=true&sdk=joey

    API URL gives 35K shares and 257 likes if I understand it correctly

    https://graph.facebook.com/?fields=og_object{likes.limit(0).summary(true)},share&id=http://www.boredpanda.com

    Can someone explain why the shares and likes widgets give the same stats? And am I correct in reading that JSON that it has 257 likes?
