I have found a very useful WP tool, or rather a simple script today while browsing around. You know those “Like” functions you see in Facebook’s status messages, videos or any wall posts?

Facebook do have the code for you to add in your site, but that does not work very well. There is a hacked version of the script that will work in any WordPress installations.
