facebook introduces re-design of its like and share button

facebook introduces new like and share button re-design




ever since being introduced by facebook in 2010, the like and share buttons have received over 22 billion clicks daily, across more than 7.5 million websites around the world. today, the social media network has unveiled the first re-design for both their like and share buttons, dropping the signature thumb icon for the facebook ‘F’ logo. websites currently using the old like button, will automatically be upgraded to the new design as part of facebook’s design roll out in the coming weeks. in addition, users can now also display a share button next to the like button, allowing them to add a personal message and customize who they share with.

  • I can’t say I like it, (no pun intended)
    it just screams for attention. Maybe it is a sign of time, that facebook is not aging well, and try to push their brand to our faces…
