Definition of a Facebook Like

The definition of what a Facebook like is.
A Facebook "like" is a sort of social vote, approval and connection made with a company or piece of content on Facebook. Company pages on Facebook originally had an option to become a "fan" that's now been replaced with "like". So if you like a company you click on their "like" button.

To do this one clicks a Facebook button on the company page or under the content on Facebook. You can also add the Facebook button to your website to collect likes from people visiting your website.

By clicking the like button you are making a connection with that company. From then on you may see stories show up on your Facebook account from a Facebook page you make have liked. You may also see content from your friend's likes.

You can also unlike a page or content which you have previously liked. More info on Facebook like can be found in Facebook's help section.
