Facebook Like Button, Viewed 22B Times A Day On 7.5M Websites, Gets A Redesign

Facebook has today updated the design of its Like button for the first time since inception. An image of the new design can be seen below.

Websites currently using the like button will be automatically upgraded.

According to the company, Like buttons appear on over 7.5 million websites and are seen 22 billion times each day. The new design has a Facebook blue background and ditches the “thumbs up” for a simple F with the word “like”. F Like. Flike.

The company is also pairing like and share buttons together in a single embed, hoping that websites will opt to use both.

What’s the difference, you ask? Well, the share button allows for a comment to be added before sharing, while the like button simply auto-posts to your feed.

You can take a look at the brand new Like button below. Let us know if you flike it.
