Nowadays everyone and every techblogs are talking about Facebook and Facebook on the net. Recently Facebook has just released a new feature called "Like", which allows users to "Like"  any pieces of content on an outside site with one click (via button or widget enabled website). Those likes are then transferred back to Facebook and integrated into users’ profiles.
