This is receiving a redesign, and it will drop the Facebook logo, believe it or not. The recent Like button had that, and the recent one doesn't. Instead, it's getting a thumbs up icon, as portrayed by the comparative image below.

The social network is also making its Like and Share buttons more mobile-friendly, by giving web developers more button sizes to pick from.

Moving on, the company is releasing a couple of Chrome extensions for the first time in its history. Their names are pretty much self-explanatory - one is called Share to Facebook, while the other is Save to Facebook.

As you'd expect, by installing the former you'll acquire an easy way to share fascinating links you find online with your Facebook friends, or to a Facebook group, or to a conversation in Facebook Messenger.

The Save to Facebook extension provides a way to quickly save any link for future reading, and it's part of the Save feature that the company launched in 2014 as its competitor for Pocket and other similar read-it-later services.
