If you want to count number of likes, shares or comments on Facebook fan page, I would share these simple codes which created by PHP to get the information

The codes below will get total of comments, likes and shares from whatever Faccebook fan page with JSON.

Code:
function facebook_shares($url){
 
    $fql  = "SELECT url, normalized_url, share_count, like_count, comment_count, ";
    $fql .= "total_count, commentsbox_count, comments_fbid, click_count FROM ";
    $fql .= "link_stat WHERE url = '".$url."'";
 
    $apifql="https://api.facebook.com/method/fql.query?format=json&query=".urlencode($fql);
    $fb_json=file_get_contents($apifql);
    return json_decode($fb_json);
 
}

How to use

For example:

Code:
$fb = facebook_shares('https://www.facebook.com/forumweb.hosting');
 
// facebook share count
echo $fb[0]->share_count;
 
// facebook like count
echo $fb[0]->like_count;
 
// facebook comment count
echo $fb[0]->comment_count;
I hope this code is useful to you and you can use it to count likes, shares, comment from your FB fan page.
