/ 5 years ago

It appears that Facebook’s “Like” and “Share” buttons are changing according to Facebook Developer Blog, and the thumbs up symbol we’ve long associated with it is no more.

Both buttons are seen daily around 22 billion times across 7.5 million websites, making the buttons a very important feature for Facebook. We see changes in design everywhere, some for the better and some not that great. But the change in design for the “Like” and “Share” buttons is more important than people think. It also has a pretty serious impact web content and the way that businesses promote their products.

Facebook’s Ray C. He had this to say on the blog:

“Today, we’re introducing a new design for both Like and Share to help people share more great content across the web. We’re already seeing a favorable increase in Likes and Shares with the new design and will be rolling these buttons out to everyone in the coming weeks. If you are currently using the old Like button, you’ll be automatically upgraded to the new design as part of our roll out.”
