Facebook unveils redesigned 'Like' and 'Share' buttons

Facebook is changing the look of the buttons that users and companies embed on their websites so that visitors can easily share their content.

The Facebook buttons are ditching their light blue shade and the signature thumbs up icon for a bold, dark blue look along with a white version of Facebook's logo. This is likely intended to make the buttons stand out more.

The new buttons should already be visible to some users. The company said all users will see the new-look buttons over the "coming weeks."

Facebook originally introduced the Like button in 2010. Since then, it has become a staple of every news website as it allows readers to share articles with ease. Several other social networks have followed Facebook's footsteps and introduced share buttons of their own.

As for the 'Like' button users see on the Facebook website and app, Facebook did not say that that will be changing.
