Facebook 'like' button not displayed

Even though the FB button is displayed at /event-registration?ee=5, it is not displayed at /event-registration?regevent_action=register&event_id=5. Meanwhile, the tweet and Google+ button display just fine.
Using: EE version and 1.1.6.p social plugin version.

It looks like the facebook API requires the page to match what is put in the data-href attribute. Try opening up plugins/espresso-social/espresso-social.php and go to line 231:

$registration_url = $permalink . '?ee=' . $event_id;

Try replacing it with something like:

if (!empty($_GET['event_id'])) {
   $registration_url = $permalink . '?regevent_action=register&event_id=' . $event_id;
} else {
   $registration_url = $permalink . '?ee=' . $event_id;

and see if that fixes it.

Sorry, I don’t mean to be rude, but I don’t really have time to test this, and I guess it should be on your side, as it is a generic failure (isn’t it?) and it is not caused by my site’s customization.
Thank you for your understanding.
