The Thumb Is Gone: Facebook Like Button Gets a Makeover

Pop quiz: What buttons are seen more than 22 billion times every day, embedded on 7.5 million websites?

Answer: the Facebook Like and Share buttons, according to new numbers released by the social network. And now these most widespread of online icons are both getting their first ever redesign.

The biggest difference you’ll notice straight away: the thumb is gone from the Like button. Instead, it will appear in the dialogue box above the button that shows you how many Likes your post or page has.

The new button features the Facebook “f” logo instead. It is white on blue, rather than blue on white, as is the new share button. The Share button will replace Facebook’s Send button — deemed too confusing.
