The Next Web reports that Facebook is testing a new blue Like button for websites. Users have spotted it showing up on the Web, but not on the social network, which suggests the potential change would only be affecting the website plugin.
Here are before (left) and after (right) screenshots, courtesy of OfficialWire:
Facebook confirmed they are testing a new button indeed but declined to offer more information as they simply sent a dull statement to TNW:
“We’re constantly testing new products but have nothing further to share at this time.”
The New button could mark the end of the “thumb up” as it seems it has been replaced by Facebook “F” logo. This could be a good move as the “thumb up” is facing an army of copycats on the web and Facebook has been having a hard time trying to get guidelines applied for its use.
Looks like this is in fact official. The button is live on our site too :) – screenshow below.
