Facebook “LIKE” Button Now is Available for Yahoo Stores!

An year ago, Facebook implemented a “like” button that let users share content that they approve of with each other. 3rd party websites are now also capable of implementing this button so that the site could get more attention on Facebook. These codes will show customers which of their Facebook friends have liked or visited your website.

You could use 2 ways to install the Facebook “Like” button at your store:

1) To enable a new Yahoo Social Media Sharing feature by yourself.
