As the name of the thread indicates, I want to add to my website a Facebook 'Share' and 'Like' buttons to each of my individual posts. On each post page I will have those two buttons so people can like or share that individual page.

I can't seem to find a way to do that, so i would like to ask you guys how can i achieve that effect (with a plugin or a code solution).

You are done.

<div class="fb-like" data-send="true" data-layout="box_count" data-width="450" data-show-faces="true"></div>

into your loop where it should appear on single.php. Also the script that you need to render this is unique to your Facebook App ID when you create the code here - http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plugins/like/ place that in your header for starters. I bookmark all my social button code pages in one place.
