I like that the count is now included in the button but I wish the text was vertically centered.
it feels weird that they've integrated the count into the Like button. it definitely results in a cleaner look, but it made more sense to keep the action and the social proof separate. now it looks as if i'll be Liking a page named "68K."
I agree, there needs to be some visual seperation between the two.
Hmm interesting that they took out the Facebook icon from the "like" button. I think it works well still since Facebook's brand is so well known already.
I think it would of been cool if they incorporated the emotions in the like button. Also add some more padding around the text. It feels like it's still too cluttered.
Do I detect a slight change in the colour as well? The slight gradient is gone too.
