Facebook has really taken off in a big way and it is aiming to become a bigger than it already is. With the introduction of the ‘like button’ Facebook is now connecting more blogs and websites back to it’s site than ever before.
The change from ‘become a fan’ to the ‘like button’ is huge. It has removed a barrier for users to share online content with their friends in one easy click (if already logged into Facebook). Think about it becoming a fan is a serious matter but liking a site, article or photo is easier and less intimidating.
