Just grab the number of Facebook likes per URL

Credit goes to the original author of the script shackeluri.com. He had made the script just pick up the number of likes a particular URL had received. The problem with this is Facebook terms the number as either 'likes' or 'shares' depending on when your site first had the like button clicked on. This script has an in-built safety net attached for this. In addition I understand some people will still want the words around the number to still be present. If you want the words removed and just have the number by itself then set $requestWords = "false";

So like this page and see what happens!
