Here’s how it works:

If you like the thread you click on the LIKE button.

If you don’t like the thread, or you don’t like the button, you DON’T click on it.

Easy peasy, no?

(This was discussed extensively yesterday. Read the previous threads.)

No, it appears that it is going directly to Facebook. When I clicked on the "Like" button, a new window opened in Facebook which prompted me for my Facebook password to log in. (If you're always logged in on Facebook, you may not see that.)

The Facebook like button annoys me a lot less than the endless reminders of how much Romney sucks, as though I'm in danger of forgetting.

I'm no Romney fan mind you, but embedding the message into every single thread is a bit much.

Is there any word in your post which is not misspelled? Is the post deliberately incoherent and intended to make FReepers look retarded and illiterate?

Use of the No Script add on to FF prevents this.

Took me second to unchuck the lock to even see if it was there.

When Humble was stating he knew some FRppers that were a ho. He didn’t mean you. I’m sure he meant the other Bubba.

Don’t like it? Don’t click the button.

Really don’t like it? Use Firefox with the NoScript extension.

Otherwise, get a Facebook account. I did, and locked the account down tight so basically nobody sees anything but my friends. I can’t even get a friend request. After that I “friended” my family and real-life friends, and then use it to help keep in touch with them.

This is not good if you want to maintain anonymity. If you don’t care, click away.

If you leave Facebook, you should log out, so they don’t follow you.

I don’’t like it either. Block scripts from running on FR and facebook. Deny both of them from running any java script. Get the Firefox add on No Script. If you have a facebook account(I don’t and won’t) then clean your cookies out before you go to facebook. Also get the Firefox add on google sharing and keep it enabled. I don’t use Google but if you do, Google makes it hell to use their search with it enabled.

thread I click on, sheesh. Sometimes trying to push something down people’s throat has the opposite effect.

“Who cares” is rude? Oversensitivity is not a virtue.

People complain about all kinds of things that just aren’t worth worrying about.

Excuse me, but who are you to decide that what some find worrisome isn’t worth worrying about? I think people that don’t worry about security on the internet when we have a sociopath Marxist in the WH with a bunch of Pinko czars and staff..... is a complete idiot.

AS an avid FaceBook user the only thing the button does is allow people like me to post a link to FR from FB. Those who do not have FB will not be able to use the button unless they decide to set an account up over there.

Social Networking is a way to reach others with the conservative message. You don’t have to use it or like it (no pun intended) - but it’s valid. I personally have seen the power of FB to reach an audience. My sister has a page that has over 11,000 followers and has 3,000 active users each day - and it only deals with early childhood education.

I think Jim’s on the right track with implementing these kinds of features.

Excuse me, but who are you to decide that what some find stupid and trivial is worth worrying about? I am as qualified as you to determine whether this is worthwhile. It isn’t.

I think people that whine about facebook are ... whiners. If you’re that worried about security, don’t sign up. Its not complicated.

It’s driving my browser crazy. Whenever I click on a thread that has it, my browser starts taking up 65-85% of my CPU. If I shut off javascript, then features that I need on other websites won’t work. Make it go away.
