Where can I find the details on who has liked and commented on my pages via the Facebook Like button that I've put on my website?

I recently put the Facebook Like plugin on my site and now see that there are a number of users that have clicked on the Like button.

Like
John and 51 others like this.

Is there a way for me to see which Facebook users have clicked on the button? I would like to see the comments and likes linked to this button.

I don't think so, it is meant to be for your users to know about their friends. You could search for your site with site:facebook.com but not all profiles get crawled by Google.

Have a look at the Facebook documentation for the Like button, in the FAQ section. There you can find some options you can explore.

suppose you want to record Likes in your database whenever a button is clicked:

FB.Event.subscribe('edge.create',
    function(response) {
        alert('You liked the URL: ' + response);
    }
);

you would replace the alert() with your handling code.

You can use the showfaces attribute to show profile pictures below the 'Like' button. I've tested it on my posterous blog, and when used with the standard layout it does work :

<div class="posterous_fb_like_widget">{block:FbLike layout="standard" showfaces="true"  colorscheme="dark" /}</div>

result in :

Handling code, i basically the code that will notify you. You can create an ajax request that sends you an email, or saves this like in your database.
