Facebook will soon let you 'like' anything on the Internet

Facebook has found another way to report to all of your friends just exactly what you are doing on the Internet. Now they've extended the "like" feature to the entire World Wide Web. Dislike.

Facebook has found another way to report to all of your friends just exactly what you are doing on the Internet. Now they've extended the "like" feature to the entire World Wide Web. Dislike.

The purpose behind the Internet-wide liking is to serve as a content-sharing tool, and it will likely start popping up online this week. But more so than just sharing your every move, there's a financial incentive as the content viewed will be reflected in the type of advertising you see pop up on the sidebars of the social network.

It might seem pessimistic, but it is likely that more Facebook users would prefer to see a "dislike" button on the news feed rather than being able to "like" everything online. And this is bound to clog up the entire news feed with ridiculous content.

The bright side is that this could be so annoying that people might spend less time on the addictive social-networking site (especially at work) and actually do something productive.
