Need to get all the likes to links in a facebook page

Hi all...

I have a page on facebook and I would like to create a "hit parade" of my links ordered by the number of like they get.

How can I do this?

I've had information but not a detailed solution.

Ok anyway.
>I've had information but not a detailed solution.

Are you expecting me to write out your program for you?  We are volunteers here and writing  code from scratch is beyond the scope.  The idea is to help guid you in a case like this.  If you have code you created, we can help you trouble shoot.  

In addition you have not given any detailed instructions.  We can help you a lot better if you start out with detailed instructions or a fake sample page of what you are doing.  We are still not going to write all of your code from scratch.

I would suggest starting out at the end.  Create a static html page of exactly what you want the end result to be.   You can then post more questions. I suggest taking it one step at a time.

Start by following the instructions to set up the app on facebook. This is simply telling facebook who you are, getting a developer key, setting up a new app and telling facebook a little bit of information.  There are online forms once you get to https://developers.facebook.com/apps to guide you.   As you get stuck, ask more questions. We are here to help.

Once you have that done, your 'app' really lives on your site.  You need to place it as in index file on some folder like www.mysite.com/apps/facebook/index.php.

To start, just make a simple static web page, upload it and see what happens.

The next step after that is reading up on the api.

You have to have some knowledge of php or another serverside language and you have not indicated what programming languages you know.

There are a lot of moving  parts to give you all the answers in one question.   Take it in steps.

That's very kind and I appreciate honestly your help (sorry if I didn't express it correctly).

I'll dig my way further and, if in need, I'll come asking again.

Thanks!
