Who needs a website when you can have a Facebook page? A recent survey by market-research firm Lab42 found that 50 percent of the 1,000 social media users who were polled believe Facebook pages are more useful than brands’ websites, and 82 percent feel that pages are good places to interact with brands.
Facebook has added a drop-down menu to the like button on pages that gives users who have liked those pages the options of adding those pages to interest lists, showing the likes in their news feeds, and unliking the pages.
With more brands converting to Facebook timeline pages each day, Facebook users have had to adjust as well. Like it or not, features are moving to different places on pages, and one of those is the unlike link.
This unremarkable t-shirt bearing an unlike icon may not remain on sale for long, but once Facebook’s legal team gets the seller to cease and desist, said garment might become a collector’s item.
No longer a fan of something? Facebook just made it easier to “unlike” your favorite Facebook Pages through the embedded fan box widgets. While many users have actually requested that Facebook a full functioning “Dislike” feature to express negative sentiment, this feature is simply an easier way to not be a fan of existing Facebook Pages that you like.
