Facebook overhauls the “Like” button

Facebook has revamped its “Like” button for third-party websites. Clicking the button now publishes a full news-feed story, rather than a “recent activity” update. The functionality duplicates that of the “Share” button, which Facebook may now phase out, writes Josh Constine. “The change gives more prominence to outbound links in the news feed and on a user’s wall, and so will increase referral traffic and draw more sites to add the Like button”
