New feature added today: "like" buttons for several social networks. I had wanted to get these in earlier, as they provide a way for artists to drive traffic to their songs.

You might want to "like" your own songs to draw attention to them. One of the issues I noticed with this implementation is that the VGMdb contains many "special" characters in album titles like "<" and ">." These are output correctly to the page, but facebook recognizes them as &quot; and similar. Unfortunately, I don't know of a way to correct the issue without exposing the site to a malicious user entering <script> tags in the VGMdb database.
Now you can embed your songs in forum posts and webpages just like this image! Click the image to find out how!
