Facebook to add 'Like' button for the web

Facebook will offer a new 'Like' button this week for websites. Content creators can embed the button on their site and users can click it and share the site with their friends through their Facebook feed.

The announcement is expected to come at f8, Facebooks annual conference which begins Wednesday. Some think this feature and some of the other new features Facebook will be adding are going to help them offer more targeted advertising.

“All the products we are launching at F8 are focused on giving developers and entrepreneurs ways to make the web more social,” said the spokesperson. “We have no announcements or changes planned to our ad offering and policies.”

It's not clear yet though how this new feature will differ from the current feature that allows you to share a link.
