On this last day of 2013, AllFacebook compiled a list of our 10 top posts for the year in terms of page views, and the list turned out to be quite diverse.
Facebook announced Wednesday that the redesigned like and share buttons it introduced last month are now available to all pages, and that page administrators can now adjust the width of embedded posts to anywhere from 330 pixels to 750 pixels.
Facebook’s redesigned like and share buttons helped contribute to a 47.44 percent rise in referrals driven by the social network to publishers in November, and Facebook saw its share of referrals skyrocket by 169.88 percent between November 2012 and October 2013, according to an analysis of more than 200,000 publishers reaching more than 250 million unique monthly visitors, by Shareaholic.

Facebook appears to be testing a version of its desktop page like ads that more closely resembles mobile page like ads.
Facebook updated its Brand Resource Center, where advertisers and the media can download official logos, icons, screenshots, and other brand assets for use with marketing materials or editorial content.
