I like it but I’m not a fan

That’s not me responding to news, that’s just me using the terms in the news. Facebook will soon do away with the option of Becoming A Fan and replace it with simply deciding to Like something. This will also be defaulted to publicly available information. Remember: Facebook wants to be a publishing tool and not a series of cloistered accounts. That way their content (meaning the content created by users) becomes more ubiquitous and more monetized through ads. Follow the money.
