Facebook Like now available for Magento


Thanks to the quick response from our developer community, Facebook Like for Magento was made available within 24 hours of Facebook’s announcement at the f8 conference.

Facebook Like is an important product because it gives merchants an easy way to socialize their products through Facebook, which ultimately means more word of mouth marketing and less money spent acquiring new customers.  Facebook also has some game-changing plans for the product in the future, and merchants who start using it now may have a big advantage down the road.

The extension is available for $29 through Magento Connect, but we reached out to retailEvolved, the company behind the extension, and they’ve agreed to offer a $10 discount for the Magento Community for a limited period of time.  Just enter the code “MagentoConnect” at checkout to receive the discount.  A demo of the product is available here.  The extension is listed here.

This is a great example of how our community is leveraging the flexibility of Magento and the openness of our marketplace to keep our more than 60,000 merchants ahead of the curve.  We now have over 2,200 extensions in the Magento Connect marketplace, and we’re seeing new developments like this every day.  Have you seen an interesting extension that will make the Magento platform even more powerful for merchants?  Be to let us know about it via Twitter.
