Goodbye Facebook Like-Gating

• Like-gating is used by brands to boost fan counts and “likes” on their respective FB pages. It involves forcing users to like a page in order to access content, contests, apps or rewards.

• Why? Facebook wants to ensure quality connections and help businesses reach the people who matter to them: “We want people to like Pages because they want to connect and hear from the business, not because of artificial incentives.”

Social platforms such as Facebook aren't as difficult to build into basic functioning websites as many would expect. And whilst today's Facebook features such as facial recognition tagging, niche advertising and post geo-targeting are becoming the expected norm, it's important to realise that it's not these wiz-bang gadgets that have driven their adoption or growth.

One aspect of the Facebook story, which seems to provide a jaw-dropping experience for many is the fact that the first version of the platform was built in a college dorm room and launched within a month of conception.

To many people who look at Facebook now, this seems an unbelievable feat, but when this fact is pointed out to those who understand computer programming, their jaw’s usually stay right where they are.
