Facebook announced today that they are replacing the classic “email to a ‘friend’ button” with a new feature called “Send”.
The new Facebook Send button is similar in both look and feel to the Like button. When you click on Send a pop box shows which allows you to send the article, page, etc to friends, lists of friends, or email addresses.
Like many other features on Facebook you can also include a personal message or post it to a Group or Pages wall.
According to a source at Facebook the purpose of the button is to make it simpler to share content with your friends.
The Facebook’s Like button is currently being implmented on more than 10,000 websites, EVERY WEEK. The new Send button is not by any means meant to replace the Like button but instead work with it.
