    Read up on the Open Graph protocol. If you add a fb:admin or fb:appid (depending on whether you want to use an application or a user to administer your site), you then can post updates to fans' walls. There are some limitations to the automagically created Facebook page that corresponds to your Like button. I don't know if they're permanent limitations, but you can only post status updates. You can't (at least in my tests so far) post things like notes and links. It may be that I'm simply missing something and that it can be done programatically, but you can't do it from the admin area of the Facebook page itself like you can with a normal Facebook page.

    Personally as a facebook fan page administrator, I send important updates via the "updates" messaging system. However, you should use this function sparingly, because to many "updates" messages to someone's inbox is annoying and a good reason for clicking "unlike".

    as others have noted, the only way to do this is to hook into the Graph API and request publishing permissions for each user (i.e., each one would basically have to "install" your application). this is a lot more work than the simple "like" button. if publishing permissions and other deeper FB interactions are important to you, you may have to consider rebuilding with the Graph API from the ground up. otherwise just be happy that your site has so many likes!

    Just stop all of you. The reaon Facebook limits your friends to 5,000 is because they don't want spammers selling stuff. So Facebook lets people "follow"pages. If you figure out away to spam people who have "liked your page, they will shut you down. Figure out another way to market.

    I think you can't since it is the like button only. But if its a fan page like button then that's easy.. :((
