Facebook gives thumbs down to the thumbs-up 'like' sign

Facebook will soon no longer look like it's hitching a ride on the information superhighway.

Facebook gives thumbs down to the thumbs-up 'like' sign

Facebook will soon no longer look like it's hitching a ride on the information superhighway.

According to Business Insider, the social media giant will dump its iconic thumbs-up sign in a few weeks, in favor of a simple blue button with the word "Like" on it. Two icons enter, one icon leaves.

I'm not sure I agree with their logic; "Facebook has also made it easier for websites to include the Like and Share buttons side-by-side and says that it has seen an increase in the number of Likes and Shares throughout its testing of the redesign."

I just think they needed a thumbs-down button so we can give the ol' Roman coliseum salute to the vanquished and stuff we hate.
