Bid a warm goodbye to Facebook’s like box as the social network said they are phasing out that social plugin in favor of its page plugin, effective from June 23rd.

The changes were announced in the developers documentation for the like box:

“With the release of Graph API v2.3, the like box plugin is deprecated and will stop working June 23. Use the new page plugin instead. The page plugin allows you to embed a simple feed of content from a page into your websites.

The like box is a special version of the like button designed only for Facebook pages. It allows admins to promote their pages and embed a simple feed of content from a page into other sites.”
