Facebook announces ‘like’ function outside of facebook

leave a comment »

Facebook has announced a new system called Open Graph, where users will now be able to ‘like’ web pages outside of facebook and the action will be posted on their friends’ news feed.

This new system is going to be initiated with more than 30 content partners such as nytimes.com and will only work when you are logged into your account.

While it only seems like Facebook is trying to invade your lives, its really just swallowing up features already in place by other sites like digg.com. They’re really just trying to make it easier for you to incorporate your entire web experience into their servers. It’s not like they’re trying to be evil or anything.

Facebook to replace ‘Become a Fan’ with ‘Like’

with one comment

Facebook is taking away the ‘Become a Fan’ link on fan pages and replacing them with the ‘Like’ feature. How does this affect you? It really doesn’t, except that you’ll probably ‘like’ more things. Statistically, users are more likely to ‘like’ someone/something than become a ‘fan.’

Recently, Facebook has announced that they would be adding the ‘like’ option to external links. Users would be able to ‘like’ a webpage or video outside of facebook and their profiles would post that action.
