I recently created a website using WIX about Creator Day on October 18 (a day for Christians to unite in glorifying our Creator, appreciating the creation, and taking a united stand regarding our continued belief in the Lord of the universe in this unbelieving day that attempts to deny the Creator). After some promotion, it had gotten 1140 Facebook likes. Suddenly 1110 likes disappeared, leaving only 30. I read that Facebook was making changes that caused some "likes" to be lost, and the WIX site instructed that Facebook be contacted. But would it really cause ALMOST ALL the likes to be lost? Or can a hacker do this? Facebook didn't respond when I contacted them, so I'm still in the dark. Has anyone else had similar experiences, heard anything, or have any advice? Does it sound more like a Facebook problem, a WIX / website problem, or a hacker problem?
It sounds like a glitch, they might actually reappear. It also sounds like FB reps aren't doing much responding to the issue.

Even though they both landed to the same page, but the URLs are different.

Yay! Today, I hit the 80,000 mark for Facebook likes on my Michigan Accents hub. I wish I had MORE hubs like this! I only published it in at the end of Nov 2011. So thrilled about this!

I think it would be useful to have a column added to the statistics page that shows the total number of shares for each hub (Tweets and Facebook likes). There is not enough room to add two columns. So this could be a...
