Will Facebook users 'Like' the move of killing the 'Share' button?

Move over Share button, Like button is here and it’s slowly conquering the world of .

After a series of updates in the past months on Facebook’s popular Like button, Facebook has finally released a news about the fundamental change on the Like-Share button. After clicking the Like button, a full story of the post you liked will be posted on your wall. The wallpost will be complete with headline, brief summary and thumbnail; similar to what you see when you click Share. Also, anyone on Facebook can post a comment on the post made.

However, this change might affect the attitude of people towards ‘liking’ a topic and not necessarily wanting to share it. On the other hand, online marketers may find this feature beneficial.

Facebook Spokeswoman Malorie Lucich spoke to Mashable about the alteration:

“That while the company will continue to support the Share button, Like is the recommended solution moving forward. However, Lucich today called it a test, saying We’re always testing new products that incorporate developer feedback as we work to improve the Platform experience, and have no details to share at this time.”
