I'm not sure if we have been told about this; if so, please could someone direct me to the correct thread? I am wondering why every post is now embellished by the Facebook 'like' invitation. I really though I was safe from Facebook on this forum and I'm not sure what the advantage of being able to 'like' every post on the forum could be. I'm also not sure if it means that if someone 'likes' my post, it will suddenly appear somewhere else without my knowledge. And please reassure me that Facebook is not planting cookies on my hard drive and abstracting information . . . . I'm not technologically illiterate but I am technologically challenged . . . .

I heartily agree. I use Facebook daily, but I do not see the Like button as appropriate here, particulary for every comment.

No place to hide. :wink:

I have become so used to ignoring facebook buttons that I hardly noticed.

I suppose it is like many sites nowadays. It has become a part of our daily cybertalk.

I went onto an anti e-tag site recently, "liked it" and added my voice to the protest.

I seldom go onto facebook, so does this mean that if I press the like button that it will show on my facebook page?

Just another point of view.

I have been working on my own professional site. I absolutely did not want any twitter, facebook or any such cyber link.

I was told quite firmly by the designer that I was being short sighted and probably denying myself the best free marketing tool around. One click of the "like'' button brings in more exposure than I could imagine.

I was just a bit concerned about the dislike button. :hmz:

The person working on my site is still adamant that I include it.

I used it (the button) yesterday. What happens when one selects it is a link to the topic page you like the post on is placed on your facebook page. I will demonstrate here now by liking this post. Go to my profile, Dalene Preston, to see the result. I will make it public if I can. So all it is doing is saving me coping the url and pasting it on my profile.

I am excited about this development. :D

They asked for one next to photos as I understand it, not sure they expected to see one beside each post . . . . Also, I don't want like buttons next to my photos . . . although I guess the professional photographers on this forum might like to have them.

I think a like button next to each post is a great idea enabling you to indicate if you like a particular post or photo without having to comment on it.
However not a Facebook like button, just a SANParks like button.
