On Facebook what is the true purpose of the 'Like' button?
All of us click the 'Like' button on Facebook; but what are we gaining from this thumbs up? What are we generating to FB? What is your reason for clicking the 'Like' button?
I guess it's just for people that don't feel like commenting or posting one word to say that they like what that person had to say. It's just easy, a click of the button.
I think it is a way for us to acknowledge something we agree with or find humorous when we really dont have anything to say about it. I love watching particular movies but I really have nothing to say after watching them other than I liked it.
I don't know that we really gain anything from it. Well, in the case of liking a company, we may be given particular coupons or deals. Other than that, I see not true benefit other than just fun and sociability.
It can be clicked anywhere if you liked any content/page. Facebook told developers to stop using like button and use Share button instead. But it is quite popular till now all over the internet.
its to show you agree or like what the person is saying. I think facebook should add a dislike button too. So when people continue to post the most annoying thing you can hit dislike!
I think the "Like" button is a great way to show your interest in someone's post. It's also a great way to follow your favorite fan pages for updates!
I think this will help to build future search engine of facebook which will work like back links..of websites
