The power of the Internet to bring attention and success to businesses is now part of the real world thanks to the Fbox "like" counter, a device designed by Lithuania-based company 12go3.

The Fbox like counter is a small device, much like a digital clock, that shows people your company's Facebook like count on a numerical display. Business owners with a large Facebook following can use the Fbox like counter to inspire confidence in real-life patrons by showing off just how much people like their business online.

The Fbox like counter is connected to the owner's Facebook page via WiFi, allowing real-time updates to the number every time someone clicks the Like button. The device is reminiscent of the old "website visit counter," which some of us might remember from the early Internet era. A big number on the counter was something worth showing off, and the same principle is used with the Fbox like counter.

Made with Canadian Red Cedar, the Fbox like counter is an attractive accessory to a store counter, and will retail at 150 euros. The Fbox like counter's ability to show off a large number of Facebook likes could be just the edge a business needs to convert a window-shopper into a regular consumer.
