Track your facebook "likes" with Arduino

 If you're constantly concerned about or interested in the number of facebook "likes" you are (or aren't) receiving, consider making a dedicated display system.

The sketch simply scrapes the data from the facebook page data, and could also be modified to display information from other websites.
