This is a UPDATE that We can Support!
Remember when you would click on this “Like” on a blog article or Facebook link? And an almost unnoticeable link would appear in your facebook feed? Well, no more. Readers will now think twice before clicking a “Like” and Bloggers and Publishers alike will benefit greatly from the new changes to the “Like” button which now will function more like the old “Share” button. Here’s what Mashable.com has to say:
After months of updates to its “Like” button, Facebook has released an update that fundamentally changes the button’s functionality to that of a Share button. Now after hitting the “Like” button, a full story with a headline, blurb and thumbnail will be posted to your profile wall. You’ll also be given an option to comment on the story link. Previously, only a link to the story would appear in the recent activity, often going unnoticed by users.
Hmmm….once again, we will be altering our behavior as we surf around the web and Facebook. Now when we click Like, all our friends will REALLY know… I don’t know about you but I used to click “Like” constantly, if it’s going on all my friends walls in such a big way….wow, not sure I will be “liking” quite so much. But I certainly hope my readers will click the “Like” button for Still Blonde after all these YEARS!!
UPDATE: I have been asked what Facebook Plugin I use for the “Like” button. Currently, I am using “FBLikeButton”. I have only had one issue with it–for a couple of days it went white and wasn’t there. Strangely that coincided with the Facebook change–it is working fine currently!
