Facebook's Upcoming Like Button Good for Web Developers

By HTMLGoodies Staff

Last week Facebook announced its upcoming Location services, which excited many developers. This week the social networking giant announced that it will soon be adding a button to its API that will enable web developers to add a "Like" button to any piece of content on their website.

The Like button is part of Facebook's Open Graph API project, which is being offered as an incentive for third party sites to network with Facebook through the sharing of content and functionality.
