    I've heard that the like & share buttons NOW do same thing. So now you can't force people to like before they get something on FB.

    I'm not all that up to speed about FB. It still confuses me. LOL

    An excerpt from someone that doesn't like 'forced optin' about this FB change today:

    So evidently this means that you cannot make someone 'like' before you give them something, like a report or free download - correct? Why is that really any different from a squeeze page where you have to give an email & confirm to get the free "whatever".

    Good thing I didn't put my new fan page up yet. :rolleyes:

    He doesn't know wtf hes on about. This makes the like function much better. If you have a like button on your website, you can make yourself admin of your website by putting your uid in the metatags. This means you can post an update to all your users so your website essentially becomes a fan page. Not many people know this but it's true :)

    Don't listen to this guy. 'Like and be proud'..
