A weeksago I asked what it meant to be a fan on Facebook and if it implied anything more than just being interested and gathering information (which Brett Standridge agreed with in the comments). Well Facebook is answering by changing becoming a fan to “like” a facebook page, just as you can “like” a comment, note or photo.

According to ABC News Facebook users click like almost twice as much as they click “become a fan.” Facebook says changing the button will make users more comfortable with linking up with a brand and will streamline the site.

So before the end of a campaign, you might be able to “like” your favorite politician’s Facebook page as well, too.
