Is this Facebook Like box passing link juice to all the "faces" it contains?

please see the facebook box found here:  http://bit.ly/1cVS878
I'm concerned if the faces inside it are passing follow links.  So 3 questions arise:
1. Is it indeed passing link juice?
2.  If it is, then is there any way to have it not do so?
3.  If it is passing link juice to the 'faces' then I don't want that because it concerns me about diluting my page.  Is my concern even rational?

 This will be our new homepage, and I want to maximize all the link power of our site.  I definitely dont mind passing link juice to our own facebook page, but passing it to users on facebook, I'm not too excited about.

Thanks for any help!

i'm not positive that it IS passing link juice, my guess is that it would be. I believe it would be minimal and wouldn't affect your rankings at all (or it could be a positive thing if people post links on their FB pages back to you).

if you're really concerned about it though, you could always add the "ref='nofollow' syntax to the <a> tags:

<a rel='nofollow' href='http://www.abc.com">FB Face</a>

this will tell a google bot not to follow the link when indexing. more info can be found at http://www.w3schools.com/TAGS/att_a_rel.asp
