Hello. My name's Jason. I have put oodles of effort into my IMDb profile AND my IMDb lists. They used to have thousands of likes. My profile had thousands of LIKES! My lists had thousands of LIKES! THEY HAVE ALL DISAPPEARED! WHY HAVE THEY DISAPPEARED?!

Dear Michelle

I have experienced the same problem as Jason. Facebook 'Likes' have been phenomenally downsized or have completely disappeared from my 'User Lists'. It appears that this is also the case for many other users, as well. Maybe this action is related to Facebook and the vote-buying issue? And thus somehow also affecting the users on this site?

Your response will be much appreciated.

Thanks for all these follow-up reports, can you confirm when these disappeared?
Also, can you confirm if the profile and list 'likes' disappeared at the same time?

Hi Michele & Paul

It appears that this issue has taken place at the same time as the others. My 'Likes' have likewise disappeared more or less 2 to 3 weeks ago. Profile and lists page have not been affected though.

Thanks everyone for confirming these additional details, I have alerted our technical staff who will take a look as soon as they can, and if I hear any updates in the meantime I will post them here.

Following-up here, our tech staff confirmed that the "Likes" are controlled by Facebook -- we have no control over how the content is displayed. The content will change depending on whether you are logged into Facebook or not.

You can find more information on how these features work on our site or others on Facebook's own help documentation on social plugins here:
http://www.facebook.com/help/?topic=socialplugins

Unfortunately, there is nothing IMDb can do concerning this "Like" issue, you may want to reach out to Facebook directly.

Hi Michelle

Thanks for the update. I find it unfortunate that 'Facebook' has failed to supply information regarding this issue to IMDb users or staff. After all, 'Facebook' is a guest on this site and should be held accountable to inform of any changes that may affect IMDb and it's users. Failing to do so unfortunately reflects badly on IMDb.
