I've used this plugin to add a simple like button to the posts in my blog, and I'm very happy with the results and functionality. The block is simple to use but has a few very useful settings (like limiting the number of likes per ip per post) and customization option. It doesn't add any unnecessary settings to the admin. And the cherry on top is the excellent support!
