Who "Likes" me on Facebook?

Is it possible to see who specifically shared or "liked" my blog post on Facebook?

I wrote a blog post last night that a number of people apparently "liked" - I have a facebook plugin which tells me that 45 people have liked it on facebook.

But is there any way to know who exactly those people are? Or at least who among them are my facebook friends?

At one point my blog post showed up in my own facebook feed and it said that 4 people had shared it. But now that's gone and I can't see anything about it anymore.

Just curious, really.

Usually it's possible to click on the "x people liked this" and have a menu pop up with a list of those people.

This is somewhat tricky (facebook is stingy about this information) but there are a few little hacks you can try. First, paste your blog post URL into this form: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plugins/like/ and make sure the show faces box is checked - it should show the faces of your friends who have liked the post.

Second, it's worth trying https://www.facebook.com/search.php and selecting "posts by friends" with your blog post url or some text from the title as the search term.

There are a couple other far more involved approaches that I can think of but I'm not sure if they would work either, feel free to memail me if you want to give them a whirl.

Good luck!
