Facebook axes the ‘Like Thumb’

It's the end of an era. After its first emergence back in 2010, the 'thumbs-up' icon that you click when you like something on Facebook is being axed by the social network. Instead, you will click simply on the Facebook 'F' icon and the word Like when liking things.

Facebook new Like icons

So what this means if you work with Facebook and use its buttons on your internet real estate is that you will need to switch over to the new buttons. A run-down is here and you can see what they look like in the above image (thanks Biz Insider). What it also means is that this is the end of an era. RIP Like, like.
