Facebook like button set to change
The Facebook “like” button is set to change, dropping the thumbs up logo and replacing it with a descriptive “FB Like” motif with dark blue background. According to one estimate, Facebook’s “Like” and “Send” buttons are viewed 22 billion times a day and are embedded into 7.5 million websites. It’s a more serious looking function now, reflecting the fact that it is now a staple feature of websites external to Facebook which have an independently thought through approach to style and design.
The idea of this button is that it will make it easier and more understandable to “like” something, whether internal or external to Facebook.
