For the first time ever, Facebook is redesigning the Like button

25 sec read

Since it first launched in 2010, the Like button has become one of the most used and recognizable Facebook icons, but now it looks like the button is getting redesigned.

When you’re redesigning the Like button, which appears on over 7.5 million websites, the details count. Every pixel you change, color you swap, and drop-shadow you alter will get seen 22 billion times per day, Facebook says. So, the company hasn’t bothered much with rethinking the look of the Like button since it launched in 2010. Back then, even Facebook itself couldn’t have predicted the scale the Like button would reach. Its presence is almost guaranteed on most websites, and it’s considered “one of Facebook’s most valuable brand assets,” product manager Ling Bao says.
