Facebook removes ‘likes’ on public pages

Facebook launched a redesigned social media experience by dropping the ‘likes’ button on public pages and would focus on ‘followers.’

The social media giant released an announcement on Wednesday saying they will only show the number of followers for pages created for artists, brands, public figures and more.

Facebook also introduced a ‘Dedicated news feed’ wherein users can “discover and join conversations, follow trends, interact with peers and engage with fans.”
