Starting on April 30th 2015, Facebook is migrating all apps to v2.0 of the Graph API with the goal of giving people more control over the information they share with apps.

The Like Box is variant of the embeddable Like Button that allows you to Like a page from other sites. The embed also show off some of the other people who liked a given Page.

With the release of Graph API v2.3, the Like Box plugin is being deprecated and will stop working on June 23rd, 2015. Use the new Page Plugin instead. The page plugin allows you to embed a simple feed of content from a page into your website.
