Be careful when you click on the "Like"

In Facebook, I think many of us do not spare a second thought before clicking on the Like button. It can be something that you truly think is good, or something that is quite lame and you just like it for the fun of it.

Well, apparently somewhere in the terms of service that you agreed when you register with Facebook, you agree to participate in advertisements that Facebook will push to you. So how does that relate to you clicking on the Like button? It seems like companies can pay Facebook to automatically push out product post/images that you "Like" automatically to your wall. It will seem like it is being endorsed by you.

So be careful before you click on any "Like" button. Who knows. You might be endorsing something that you thought is quite funny.
