    Today i've been browsing my own newsfeed and it appears some of the "likes" are no longer clickable, in that it just says User likes XXXX on Sitename - Like but you cant actually click the XXXXX or Sitename.

    Code:
    hxxp://img835.imageshack.us/img835/1700/facebooklike1.jpg
    As you can see there, the first "like" is not a hyperlink at all, but the next one from a different user is.

    Code:
    hxxp://img828.imageshack.us/img828/5776/facebooklike2.jpg
    
    Again, as you see above, the Santander Students is clearly a hyperlink, but the "Its fucked" is a official technical..." is not.

    Am I going on about something everybody already knows about?

    Is this standard for all external Like Websites or only for those reported as being abusive? I seriously doubt it is for all external websites, as this linking mechanism is a huge driving force behind FB's Open Graph API.

    It is not a rule for all websites, just the flagged ones.

    Wait..."liking texts?" You mean liking a virtual fan page or actually liking a REAL external website? It would make no sense for them to disable hyperlinks for external websites that play by the rules.

    yeah, earlier came across a site which use short urls such as bit.ly to post their links. But after few days, facebook even remove the link of that short urls. crazy though as they can go to the extream to even make the short urls unclickable considering the short url links are never ending..

    Yea, unfortunately FB is owning the game right now, just like I guessed they would. :(

    Of course I was just trying to "start hype," increase my post count, and "appear cool" on BHW when I warned about these changes about a month prior to them happening. It had NOTHING to do with the fact that it was simply an educated guess based on my 10+ years of Internet Marketing experience that actually proved to be true. [/sarcasm]

    Ah well, more room for the experienced and people with deep pockets. :D
