Can users Like or Share my page directly through the feed?
Before clicking “Like” or “Share” on any news on your Facebook stream, the user must authenticate using their Facebook account. This authentication does not provide the user with Wi-Fi access. In order to access Wi-Fi, the user will must perform a second authentication on your splash page, via Facebook.
