    Works for me. If it will help W1zz without somehow compromising the site, I'm all for it.

    But not everyone diggs either :cool:

    As BP said its just a button and the only thing to gain is more traffic. If a person doesnt wish to "Like" they dont have to. As for me FB is the only thing I use to post stuff, Twitter is for LOTRO contests and I dont use anything else.

    I think it's a good idea - no-one if forcing people to use it (I don't have digg but I don't go around saying "remove the digg buttons" just because they are no use to me. Would help get TPU a lot more visibility out there and I've never seen "like" button additions slow down loading speeds or anything, so there's no real negative beyond the small amount of work setting up a TPU FB page and copy/pasting the "like" button code.

    We already have the "share" button for facebook - adding "like" just makes it easier/faster to get TPU mentioned on FB.

    +1 I think it's a great idea, should bring the site more publicity! definitely news articles too, lots of great articles come through that would appeal to a greater crowd than just hardware enthusiasts.

    But at least it can help you work on spelling :toast:

    OT, I support this idea as I often find myself copying URLs from here and posting them as my status anyways: that would make it much easier to do.

    That was Abit Uncalled for.....:wtf:

    Anyway back into the matter in Hand, I cant say I like the idea but Nor can i agree with the fact that someone Said if you dont have Facebook you dont click the Like Button Etc.

    I Was a Member on Facebook But i Got Bored with it and Deactivated my account + I kept Getting Strange People Send me Friend Requests from what it Looked like to be a Prostitute.
    Facebook is Full of Hate i think aswell to many people Sticking up Personal information.
    gunsmoke says thanks.
