New FB Comment Feature on Active Rain When You Like a Post?

OK, it's probably not a new thing...but it's the first I have seen of it.  There are two things going on with the Face Book Like button on the bottom of our posts.  One is a glitch of some sort that has me and about 1000 others already Liking a Post when we never pushed the button.  I don't get that one but I have brought it up before and figure eventually it will get fixed.

FB Like Comment

The other I just noticed today when Liking a couple of posts.  It seems those posts that you haven't already "Liked" by default are letting you add a comment to the "Liked" post before you share it on your wall.  I think it's kind of cool so I made sure to add comments to both of the posts I liked today!
New stuff is always happening here in Active Rain and although I am sure they let us know about this one, I missed the announcement.  Either way, it was a nice surprise this morning when Liking a couple of posts!

I noticed this morning each time I liked something it shows up HUGE on my wall.  FB has giving me warning that I'm countdown to a timeline change over on my personal page too.  My brain doesn't work in timeline :)

FB is doing many things to generate more interactive. Some I like, some I can pass, haha.

Brenda I am not on FaceBook much. But I do have a problem when they just take it upon themselves to make decisions for me.  I don't recall signing anything giving them that right.

I've noticed the many "likes" from time-to-time, but why complain??  Sometimes I see things and it dawns on me a while later -- I'm so glad I'm not the only one ;-)

It was nothing we did. It's a change that Facebook made :-)

In fact Nikesh our CEO just noticed it yesterday for the first time as well and that was the first any of us had seen of it. You're very perceptive :-)

The other issue is something we are trying to figure out. It has something to do with when a member uses certain characters (for instance, !!, $, % ,&, etc) in the title of their blog post. Somehow this messes up the FB share URL and we are looking at ways to remedy that and still give people the opportunity to use those characters. My guess is that if you have a post like that, where it shows 1000+ likes right away, if you were to remove any number row characters it will fix itself.

Okay I am going to have to look into that. I posted this morning but did not see the like button or just plain ignored it. Now I am really curious and I am going to have to go look right now.

Hi Li-Not a problem :)!

Hi @Caron-I like the interconnection too????

Hi George-Me either???  What's happened?  Of course I don't know everything about FB yet, so I am probably missing something here.

Hi Dorie-Glad to see you are so busy :)!

Hi Carla-You are definitely NOT the only one :)!

Hi Bob-Really...I thought it was you guys lol :)!!  I wish I was a bit more perceptive.  I just lucked out that I found this early lol :).  Thanks for letting me know about the number thing.  Interesting.  

Hi Bob-Thanks :)!

Hi Sussie-It's when you like someone else's post.  Not sure about liking our own.

Brenda-You've probably forgotten more about Facebook than I'll ever know. I learn something new about it every week, but have not been very good about implementing an effective Facebook strategy. Oh well, there's always tomorrow.
