Likes UP:  What is a Facebook Action Link?

Actions are the high-level “interactions” users can perform in your app.

When these high-level “interactions”are published, the activities may appear in a users’ Timeline or their friends’ News Feeds and Ticker. Open Graph Action Links show up alongside the Like and Comment actions in any Open Graph story allowing friends to quickly take action in response to a story without having to navigate away from that story. This in turn will drive more distribution to your app with fewer user clicks.
