Once the user interacts with a site including the OpenLike widget and shares some content by “liking” it, that action will be posted out to the appropriate source.

For instance, if you “like” the example implementation page shown in Figure 2-4 using the Facebook option, your Facebook profile will display a new like notification (Figure 2-5).
