Creating link/button that shares a campaign in Facebook newsfeed?

I think that at some point Facebook made changes on their end that effect how <fblike></fblike> works. It used to be that this would allow a campaign to be shared in the newsfeed on Facebook. Now it just appears as a Like on a Facebook user's timeline. Is there any other code snippet available that would allow a campaign to be shared in the Newsfeed?

Hi dsafanda, to confirm, 'sharing' and 'liking' are two different tasks in Facebook - our <fblike> tags were only designed to make liking a page or email campaign possible. Unfortunately, Facebook have deprecated their old sharer.php code snippet which made sharing (ie. posting to the newsfeed) possible and a non-Javascript version hasn't been made available in its place.

By all means you can investigate using sharer.php, but generally we don't recommend its use, as Facebook may disable it at any time.

Sorry for this trouble, but we'll keep you posted if we say create a tag for sharing campaigns.
