Facebook "Like" needs "Confirm" sometimes/somewhere.

Today, I have noticed that the "Confirm" button appears after clicking Facebook "Like" button in this blog.

If we click "Confirm" button, a pop-up window similar to the Facebook Share appears.

The link will appear in Facebook only after we click the "Like" button again in the pop-up window.

It seems Facebook has implemented this new flow only in few places which are suspected as "like-hijacking" sites.

I am not sure why facebook implemented this change in this blog also. We are NOT doing any like-hijacking. If you know the way to remove this "confirm" from this blog, you can share it thro' the comments.

There is a Facebook forum thread on this topic that may be helpful. I don't know if you have the problem still, but here is the link:

I'm experiencing the same issue, at least they should warn ppl not to like/unlike too much in their docs, as I've got serious headaches to figure out why this was happening. At first I thought it was some sort of bad settings at the fb app profile, or javascript error... I've lost >24 hours of work... thank u fb!! ¬¬
but anyway, I do not know how to fix it... any ideas? because there's not too much light in that forum, apart from knowing the cause. I need the solution or at least some experience on this matter. Do you still have the problem? if so... how you did to get the normal functionality back?
