Faceboook has recently introduced the “Universal Like Button” at the F8 Developer Conference. So what does this “Like” button do? Visitors to web sites can thumbs-up individual pages with one click and publish that to Facebook.

From Advertising Age
Facebook’s new tools, including the like button, activity feeds for other Facebook users and recommendation engines, are designed to embed Facebook functionality on outside websites. With like buttons on 75 sites, including publishers such as CNN and the New York Times, from day one, Facebook expects to serve more than 1 billion buttons in the first 24 hours.
