    Every magazine has a Facebook like button for the article and for the Fanpage (usually last one in the sidebar).

    So if now an user likes the article, what happens? In rare cases it will show up on the timeline of other people but most likely scenario is that nothing happens. Why not instead tricking the person into liking the Fanpage instead of the article?

    I never understood why EVERY website is preferring the URL-like.

    Anybody knows?

    Well, from my viral sites I know that a share brings around ~2 other visitors while a like is on your list and probably visits your website on average like 10 times.

    If they were smarter they would link up the button so the person Liked their FB page rather than just a Like for their website URL.

    Alternatively just Like Jack people instead :)

    The person you tricked to like your fanpage instead of the link may visit your site again and will see on the new link that he somehow likes this already - thus he will think you hacked him or whatever and try to avoid your website in the future or even report it to FB :)
    Reputable websites won't do this or worse - likejack for obvious reasons.
