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 Facebook.

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.”

Do you think it’s necessary to “kill” the Share button? Hit the comment box below.

“We’ve begun rolling out new variations of the Like button to make it more seamless for people to like content and share it with their friends. We’ll have additional details to share in the coming weeks.” Facebook says.
