Linking a website to a Facebook 'Like' Button

I've just created a website, and I'm very happy with the layout and everything. Just one small problem is that I have opened an account on Facebook specifically for the website which is linked to my own personal Facebook account, and have added a Facebook Like Button on the website using yola which I thought was linked to the Facebook account. I have sent several requests on Facebook to family and friends asking them to 'Like' it. About 15 of them have done so, but only 4 'Likes' showing on the website. Is it possible for them to like on the Facebook page and for it to show on the website, or do they have to visit the website and 'Like' on there? Can anyone offer advice, please?

Hi, Jason,

It appears to update only on the website, however, I will check to make sure if that is the proper behavior and let you know.

Hi,

I did some checking and this Facebook like button pushes the likes to Facebook but it does not go the other way. So if someone likes it on Facebook, this will not update the numbers on the website. If someone likes it on the website, the numbers will update on Facebook but only the website likes will show on the website. I hope this helps to clarify.

If you created a company page on FB the like you get on FB will show on FB and your site.
