    Since it has no likes node, the ReferenceListAndCountDeserializer will return null, making calls that use like throw NPE.
    This is, as they say, a problem.

    Will have to work around it locally for the time.

    I'll look into it, but before I do...can you confirm that you're using the latest snapshot builds when seeing this?

      Merge pull request #33 from habuma/master

      Updated README to reflect new build process
      and comparing to what I have checked in (using SVN for our local source control, merging vendor to our branch)

      ? build

        Alright, then I'll have a look. Sounds like a bug to me. Will queue it up on my todo list and let you know.

          Quick update: I just pushed a fix for this into the latest 1.1.0.BUILD-SNAPSHOT build. If no likes information is available, the getLikes() and getLikeCount() methods will return null.
