I recently came across two Movable Type installations where the owners were complaining about the slowness of searching, commenting and submitting public entries.  In such cases, often the server load is suspected, or maybe the database is the bottleneck.  However, in both cases a different culprit turned out to be slowing things down...
I just released a new plugin called FacebookShareCount.  Using Facebook's API it pulls in the number of shares each of your entries has received on Facebook, and adds this information to your Movable Type installation.  You can then display this info in the backend of your MT installation (if you are using MT5) via the listing framework, or sort entries with it in published templates.
