Simple Facebook Integration

So strickly speaking this isn't about Silverlight but it is cool and relates a bit to what I do when I blog or build sites that use Silverlight. Basically here is how to add a facebook 'like' feature to any site. The HTML looks like thus:

<iframe src="" allowtransparency="true" style="border: medium none; overflow: hidden; width: 80px; height: 21px;" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"
> </iframe>

when you run that html is should show up in your browser like this:

[ ]

So going back up to the html code above you'll note its all an iframe referencing the facebook 'like' php file via an http reference (url). when looking closely we can see that there are a number of query string parameters. for the most part the only one you need to edit is the last one which should be the url of the page in which you embed this html. and thats pretty much it. :)
