HI,

We implemented a wordpress template but we noticed that everytime a person clicks on "like" facebook button, the site appears shared as "I like HOME" which HOME is the name of the main page of the website. We would like to customize the name of the "likes" as "My company page" instead of "HOME", is that possible and how to?

Regards.

I'm thinking you may have grabbed the wrong code then.  Facebook generates two types of Like buttons, one for the page the code is embedded on and one to like a Facebook group/business page.  Which one are you using?

Yes I have grabbed the wrong code, I need it to use the one to like a Facebook group/business page.
