XF 1.5 Facebook 'recommend' button not appearing

Facebook integration is complete, and the test works, though this seems unrelated.

Facebook integration is enabled in the control panel, and it appears like this when I view the page source:

<div class="section infoBlock sharePage">
<div class="secondaryContent">
<h3>Share This Page</h3>
<div class="tweet shareControl">
<a href="https://twitter.com/share" class="twitter-share-button" data-count="horizontal"
<div class="facebookLike shareControl">
<div class="fb-like" data-href="http://www.thehighroad.org/index.php" data-layout="button_count" data-action="recommend" data-font="trebuchet ms" data-colorscheme="0"></div>
<div class="plusone shareControl">
<div class="g-plusone" data-size="medium" data-count="true" data-href="http://www.thehighroad.org/index.php"></div>
So it's trying to show. But none of my browsers on either of 2 machines (here and at my datacenter in another geographic location) see the box show up. I asked my users and they are seeing the same behavior - twitter and g+ buttons are there, but not the facebook recommend.


Disabling the feature eliminated the gap between the G+ and tweet buttons.

I'm at a loss as to what the problem might be. Has anyone seen this before?
The problem was resolved by going into Style Properties: General and choosing a Facebook Plugin Color Scheme. Neither had been selected.

Once I chose one, the buttons started showing.
