On April 21, Facebook celebrated the “Like” button’s first birthday.
Just one year ago, CEO Mark Zuckerberg took the stage at the F8 developers conference to announce the advent of the “Like,” along with a host of other Facebook expansions. And today we find the Like button almost in every websites. Cool!
What is a Facebook Like Button?
This may sound silly, but if your a newbie to internet. Facebook Like Button is a feature that will help you to express your interest about a website or its contents, in your facebook account.
Lets say, a user visits any website, for instance Thfire.com, and if the users likes the website or its contents, the user goes on to click the Like button.
The clicking of Like button will lead the user to his/her facebook account and he/she can share the preferred stories to their friends using the Like button. By this way, the social connection with the friends is maintained. Thats why we call Facebook as the giant in Social Networking sites.
As per Mashable, “50,000 websites installed the Like button in its first week, and that number rose to 100,000 in less than a month.”
According to Facebook, 10,000 new websites are adding this social tool every day.
Despite users’ requests for an accompanying “Dislike” option, Facebook has not announced plans to modify the “Like” button.
