Hello All, 

*Firstly, sorry for cross posting.*

Many have been banging on about issues surrounding the Facebook Like button and its proliferation on the web. My concerns are that services which are hosting this "social" component are not being transparent wrt to what are the capabilities of the Like button, and that they are not being upfront with their users about the "opt-out" nature of the button.

I have described this in detail on my blog :

Comments/feedback welcomed. 

Cheers,

Mischa
