We have received many complaints regarding users losing their Facebook Like count on their Wix site.


We have approached Facebook regarding this matter and they have informed us that this is a known issue related to Like buttons that are connected to a non-Facebook URL and that they are investigating.


Please note that the Facebook API is the engine that provides the counter for your Facebook Like button. This applies to the Facebook Like app from Wix, as well as Facebook's code to generate the Like counter using the HTML App.


If you are experiencing a loss in your Facebook Like count for your site's URL, then please contact Facebook regarding this matter.


You can raise an issue with Facebook by contacting the Facebook Help Center here.

    I wonder if this issue is related...My facebook counter only works on my home page.   All the others still register 0, even though my home page lists a number.  I'm thinking it may be a facebook issue, because the twitter button number is consistent through the whole website.  Am I right?

    If not, what can I do to correct this?

      Please note that Like buttons work per site address or URL. It counts the likes for every page in your site separately. 


      If you wish to add a Like button that allows visitors to Likes a page on Facebook, such as your business page, check out our Facebook Page Like button.

    I am having the same issue. I can see when I edit my page that I have over 4000 likes which is on par with the popularity of my site on wix from the time we first put our page together on wix. But now, it only shows 1,102 likes. We feel that this is hurting our brand and are considering moving our url to another provider. Peace.

    Hi, I wondered if you have any updates?  I've contacted FB, but according to their help site they can't deal with every individual request.  

    I find it interesting that the Wix FB likes are still active...sorry, I had to point it out, as it would seem that many people are suffering from this loss

      As the Best Reply states, this is an issue on Facebook's end, therefore we cannot fix it on our end.

      The reason Wix Facebook Like is still active is that this issue does not affect all users.

      I apologize for the inconvenience.

    facebook likes disappeared


    I have a like button on my website (www.nutrigrill.co.uk) and I invested a lot to drive up numbers on it, but as I was just about to reach 700, all my likes disappeared and it reset to 0 . Now I have only one (which was me). I know they said the problem is with Facebook and we need to contact them, but frankly their customer support is one of the worst I've ever came across. So I'm just wondering if there is another way to fix or report this?

      I checked your site on my iPhone and saw 6 Likes to your site, as on the desktop version:

      Please provide us with a screen shot of the problem. 

      You can do so by Pressing the Power and Home buttons at the same time will also grab an image of the screen.

      To upload the screenshot, simply click on the "Upload" button and follow the steps.

      If you wish to use your own like button code, you can generate one here, and embed it using our HTML App.
