JQuery Lightbox - extending it

I am implementing this light box on my shopify site -- http://lokeshdhakar.com/projects/lightbox2/#examples

Works great.

I want to add in a social share button so someone can click on a photo and post it to facebook.

I am looking for ways to implement this.

Facebook has a social share script - but what is the best way to implement it. How can I extend the current code? Should I create a separate script or add on to the lightbox code. If writing a separate script - how do they work together?

Thank you!
