Facebook's Like Button Gets an Upgrade [news.cnet.com]

Is Facebook getting ready to show its Share button the door?

The social-networking giant recently released an update that adds Share button functionality to the Like button, perhaps presaging the phasing out of the Share button. When a Facebook user clicks the Like or Recommend button on a third-party site, a full feed story with headline, blurb, and thumbnail is generated on the user's wall. Users will also have the option of commenting on it.

Previously, unless third-party publishers chose the Like with Comment version of the button for their site, users got only a link to the story in their recent activity section on their wall. Now the Like, Share, and Recommend buttons will all generate the full story with headline, blurb, and thumbnail.

Does this mean we really need to use the Facebook metatags?

<meta property=”og:tag name” content=”tag value”/>
<meta property=”og:description” content=”"/>

Will Facebook not read the description metatag of the site? I'm confused

Facebook will read what it can from the page tags, like title and description, but you will want to provide things like a thumbnail image in particular.

This can be very useful in promoting some websites. :-)
