You see, last week Facebook expanded its “Like” button — a little icon you click inside your Facebook news feed to say you dig something, which in turn pushes that item higher in your friends’ Facebook stream — to partner sites around the web. Like wildfire, now The New York Times, CNN, Huffington Post, Vimeo, and thousands of other sites have spread the Facebook “Like” on their articles and videos so you can push their stuff back to friends.
So this week Zach cleverly launched a Likebutton.me app to collect everything your friends are liking. You can even sort all the recommendations by categories: News, entertainment, travel, movies, reviews. If you trust the judgment of your friends, you no longer need a publisher portal. Which gives newspaper editors their new reason to cry.
