If you translate 'me gusta' literally, it means 'it pleases to me'. Unlike most verbs, this means you have to change the pronoun to talk about what other people like, e.g 'nos gusta' 'it pleases to us'. It also means that if the thing you like is plural, you have to change the verb to 'they please to me', i.e. 'me gustan'
Use gusta with singular nouns or infintives, e.g.
me gusta la informática - I like ICT
nos gusta jugar al baloncesto - We like to play basketball
Use gustan with plural nouns, e.g.
les gustan los perros - They like dogs
