i have read all the wordpress forums, & they speak of receiving an email, whenever someone likes my post on my website.
however i do not receive any emails about who this is.
i have looked at the settings/discussion area to tick the right box, but said box does not exist.
i have jetpack installed & also a Facebook plugin that posts directly to my Facebook page.
do the likes come directly from my Facebook page?
can you please tell me how i am suppose to know or how can i find out who has liked my page directly.

Do you host your website on WordPress.com? Reason I ask is the URL you listed above is for users of WordPress.com only not WordPress.org. I know that sounds confusing but here’s the difference. WordPress.org is where any user no matter who they host their website with can download the WordPress package and install it.
WordPress.com, on the other hand, is for those users who want to use WordPress but don’t want to bother with finding a host, buying a domain name or installing it themselves. The other difference is that with WordPress.com you have added features such as email notifications when someone likes your post. With WordPress.org you only receive notification if someone comments on a post. That is unless you use a plugin that offers that feature. If it did it would be under the plugin’s settings or options page.
So you may want to check your plugin’s page to see if the feature is offered. You may also want to Jetpack’s page at http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/jetpack/.
Hope this helps!

Thanks for the reply. Indeed i do host my own site, so yes by your suggestion i would be wordpress.org
I currently have jetpack installed, but it doesn’t tell me who likes my page directly on my page, i notice that one of my blog posts has 15 likes, but i have no way of telling who has liked this page.
Can you recommend any plugins that would tell me that? if this is a conflict of interest perhaps you might be able to tell me the keywords to search for said type plugins.
