    With Pinterest giving Facebook a run for its money Facebook is now ready to deliver a "Want" button, not unlike their "Like" button, to their users.

    What do you think of this additional feature?

    Users don't need to worry about change just yet. While the button is coded, the code does not seem to be functioning properly so there will be a bit of a wait till the big reveal.

    What would be the purpose of a "want" button, when would it be used?

    It'd be used the same way it's used on Pinterest. On Pinterest people upload pictures and members will click on their Want button if it's something that they want. For example, if I put a picture of a BMW up and you wanted a BMW you'd click on the Want button.

    I can see how that would work on a picture sharing site like Pinterest. I'm not sure how relevant it would be on FaceBook, I suppose we will find out how much it appeals to FaceBook users, once they introduce it.

    Sounds good...But Before this they change there sites with new pages.. Tag page n new page... But as per me i like older page to compare new one page... New one page has all the record shown. For example if i upload the pic. So it's shown all the detail with time day date...
    So i don't like this.. So let see what extra additional changes people like or not.....

    I havent heard anything about this, but if it is true, i think it is pretty dumb.
    I think a "Dislike" button would be alot better, rather than just he "Like" that they have just now.
    I dont mean a "Dislike" button for pages, groups, etc.. Im just meaning for photos, status, videos, etc..

    I'd like to see FaceBook add a "Yawn" button, I think that could work pretty well, as a way to show lack of appreciation for some content posted there :)

    hmm i also think that there should be a unlike button. because now a days too many people posting porn photos and content also on facebook. Due to this facebook is getting too much spam pics and all things so to save facebook from porn posters it should be.
