Non-SDK method

It's also possible to include the plugin on a page without having to load the Javascript SDK and parse XFBML (which is likely much faster). You can include an iframe that loads http://www.facebook.com/plugins/likebox.php and you can include the same parameters as above but as GET variables.

iframe example:

<iframe src="http://www.facebook.com/plugins/likebox.php?href=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Ffbwiki&amp;width=292"
 scrolling="no" frameborder="0" 
 style="border:none; overflow:hidden; width:292px; height:427px;"
