Facebook begin testing brand new "Want" button
Tired of "Liking" things on Facebook? Pretty soon you may be able to "Want" things too apparently.
According to Inside Facebook, the social networking site has begun testing on a new "Want" button plugin that will work similarly to the iconic "Like" button but will only be used for products.
The site also quoted a Facebook statement as saying: “We’re always testing new Platform features, however we have nothing new to announce.”
Inside Facebook already sound convinced by the idea of a Want button, noting that it would allow users to click on a product without having to authorize the app behind it.
"If the Want button plugin works similarly to the Like button, users will not have to go through the step of authorizing an app. This means even more users will be likely to click it," they said.
"A Want button plugin will make it easy for e-commerce and other sites to implement this type of Facebook functionality without having to build their own apps.
"Many of these sites are already using the Like button, but Liking a product could mean users already have it or that they are interested in getting it." Sounds like a pretty smart move to us...
