Facebook redesigns 'Like' and 'Share' buttons After introducing its 'Like' and 'Share' buttons in 2010, the social network giant has decided they need a make-over.
Say goodbye to the tiny thumbs-up Like button that has forced its way into your Internet life in the past three years. Facebook has decided that a blue button with a little 'f' icon and the word 'like' is the way to go to get your attention from now on.

Believe it or not, the Like and Share buttons from Facebook are on more than 7.5 million websites in the world, and are viewed more than 22 billion times daily by Internet users. Therefore, redesigning them is not a risk-free task.

Facebook has positive data on its side though, with Facebook's Ray C. He indicating that the change has already produced improvement.

"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," he wrote.
