I noticed last night that my Facebook Likes are gone. I had nearly 300 likes on one of my hubs alone and now they are all gone is anyone else experiencing this?
I've noticed the FaceBook "Like" button can sometimes lag a hub from loading. Which Hub was it? Is the issue still occurring? And where you logged in? (just covering all the bases here)
I noticed the same thing this morning. One of my articles had 20 Facebook likes that have now diwndled down to 1 overnight. I sent en e-mail to the hubpages administrators.
This is the hub that had nearly 300 Facebook likes and no it shows none.
Very interesting. That's gonna bake my noodle for a bit, but I'll sleep on it.
Ahh! For a second I thought, surely you jest! But you're absolutely right, going back a second time the Like button has now acquired a count of 291.
Do yourself a favor and click the "Like" button on that hub What's News, and tell me if anything changes.
Unless you've done it already.
What browser are you using BTW?
I've found that the number of counts the like button has will disappear when you clean your browsing history.
But I'm not able to repeat this issue now. Maybe I'm not noticing the right problem.
It shows 291 likes over here. Seems like it's still working.
I lost almost all of mine. I didn't clear my browser history. I wonder what it is the problem..
It seems to be working now. I wasn't sure if it was just happening to me glad to see others have had the same problem. To those who are having the same problem don't worry it must just be a glitch and you will apparently retain those Facebook likes. Ixxy to answer your question I am using Internet Explorer.
Which hub are you having problems with or is it just all of them Elle?
it's pretty much all of them, except a few I just liked since reading this thread. Maybe it is FB, I just signed out. I'll try again later.. not that it's a huge problem, but it would be nice to know why they're not showing up.
I see 3 on this one:

Do you remember the Like count on any particular Hub?
most of the latest and hot hub had likes, the only one I can distinctly remember is http://hubpages.com/hub/Kenny-Vance-and … -Personal, it was between 30-35. thanks LL.
Hmmm...I also see no Likes, but it looks like from Ixxy's link, it's a temporary Facebook problem.
I wonder if it's Facebook. It could be timing out. I've noticed that a couple of times.
It might be. I had thought about that when I first noticed it and then refreshed my page and nothing happened. It might be a problem associated with Facebook instead of Hubpages. After all Facebook did just update the look of their site a week or so ago. Maybe it's just something they haven't worked the kinks out of yet.
I've been grazing information about what is involved in the Like button.
Turns out, it's a problem that's felt all over:

[ed. Granted this was six months ago, but still.]
Still seeing 25 people on that Kenny Vance link, on a different computer/browser/IP. Hopefully the bug has been fixed!
Did you ever find out why this happened? I had almost 3000 likes and then poof they were gone! I'm so upset!

This was the hub
I haven't been able to log in to my Facebook for over a month now, no matter what I do. I've done all the things they say on the "Help" or "Forgot Password?" button, and all that.
I've requested new password reset email about thirty times by now, and I check my "Spam" folder on both my email accounts, etc., etc., . . .
This morning, I happened to notice a question on Hubpages about this same thing. I'd never connected it with the Hubpages. I do put "likes" and link to my Hubs when I write them.
Now I can't find that Hubpages question, but ---- wow, that's pretty amazing, and horrible.
Any new info on this, I'd really like to know about it.
this has been going on for a while now, I haven't heard any specific reason why the 'likes' have disappeared. I've also noticed they are gone from the FB social plug-in on all hubs. All I see are hubs shared. It would be helpful to understand how the plug- in is helping us now or if the 'like' feature on HP is now of no benefit.
I am now 99% sure that the links that the missing likes are supposed to represent are still intact on FB. This conclusion is based on the fact that my FB traffic stats have been unaffected by my missing likes.
I think something is very strange. I just clicked on the links in the FB social plug-in box on a hub and every link said, this page no longer exists, except the one about a woman with a police badge which has 164 likes in 10 hours. the person joined 10 hours ago.

People are reporting that if a Hub gets made Editor's Choice, it loses its Facebook likes.This sounds like a real issue to me.http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/115381

Facebook "Likes" disappearing?I was looking at my hubs today and noticed one that has 0 Likes but the last time I looked at it it had over 30. I know that the users didnt remove their "Likes" because I was one who had clicked the Like button myself. Anyone else see this happen...

Yesterday when i reviewed one of my hot hubs, i noted that Facebook like on all my hubs was lost. I hope Hubpages rectifies this problem ASAP.

I am using the newest version of Firefox on a Windows 7 premium PC, but when the "Pin" and "Tweet" buttons appear on my hubs for sharing, there is no sign of the "Like" button for Facebook users. Yet there is an empty space where it should be. Is this normal, or has...

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!
