So I'm testing out the Facebook "like" button on news articles. Let me know if you like it or have any issues. You'd think they'd make it easier to implement, but after some tweaking, I got it working fairly well I think. I just wish they let you customize the title and body text like in direct link posting on Facebook...but I guess it's not exactly the same.

Please share away and spread the word about Metalunderground.com !

I was just scrolling comments on the latest Opeth article, and read one I particularly enjoyed. It could be that I am a social network junkie, addicted to the immersive nature of sites like facebook, but I found myself wanting to press a 'like' button on the comment.

Just a thought.

I have thought that so many times now... I wish there was a like button everywhere :-) I dunno if it makes sense to code it into MU for comments, especially though.

I think instead of a 'like' button, a \m/ horns type thing would be more appropriate, and convey the same general sentiment.

No words neccessary, just upward pointing and exclamation points to signify intense, near hyperbolic agreement.
