The global rollout for Facebook’s long-awaited reaction buttons on the social network starts on Wednesday. So now, instead of just liking a friend’s post, you can now react with “love,” “haha,” “wow,” “sad,” or “angry” emoji.
In a court room in Virginia, Facebook's lawyers are busy arguing that the social network's "Like" feature needs to be recognised with free-speech protection under the US Constitution.
Dutch programmer Joannes Jozef Everardus van Der Meer is suing Facebook over its 'Like' button. Companies get sued all the time! Why do we care? Well, aside from having an A+ name, van Der Meer is actually... dead. He passed away in 2004, just as Facebook was beginning to take over the world. Why is he suing now?
If you're a Twitterer, you're probably very familiar with the Favorite button on tweets. It's Twitter's equivalent to the Facebook 'Like' and a way to show appreciation to a good tweet, a weird tweet, a tweeted link or any tweet without replying or retweeting. It's fun and it works.

The best feature on Twitter is one you probably don't use. I'm talking about Favoriting, the act of adding a star to a tweet that you like. It's going to be huge.
Lior and Vardit Adler just had a baby girl. She's probably all cute and wrinkly! But they hate her soo much that they named her Like, in honor of the Like button in Facebook. Of course, they explain it differently:
Liking something on Facebook is sometimes like going to a charity event where you "Raise Money for Cancer." No! That's not what you meant! You just wanted to draw awareness to the... aw, well, you know the feeling:
Facebook! What terms won't you redefine? First friendship, and now the verb of liking itself. You see, that ubiquitous little "Like" button emblazoned across the internet used to just note on your news feed that you clicked it. No more.
The Facebook Like rubber stamp was so popular, that its creators are now selling them. Not only that, but they've created what everyone wants for the real Facebook: A dislike button stamp. Come on, Zuckerberg, you know you want it.
