What I Like About Facebook
Today, the largest social networking site Facebook made a major change to its fan pages. They introduced the new and improved “like” button.
Previously when fan pages were created, you needed to become an official fan to join by clicking on a button that said “Become a Fan.” Apparently this put some pressure on users who might like a particular brand, but didn’t want to fully endorse it. Now, in an effort to keep things lighter, “Fan” pages have been re-named “Like” pages. A new button has replaced the “Fan Button” with a “Like Button.”
The functionality will remain the same as you will become someone who likes a particular page or brand on Facebook, but in a less-pressured environment.
Facebook is also now allowing you to control which pages show up on your profile. Thank you Facebook. This is excellent news as it helps businesses who may be following their competitors to push that page lower or prevent it from showing up under pages that you like in a search.
Not to be confused with liking a particular post on a page or your friends pages, the term “like” still applies to posts.
