Facebook is giving the Like and Share buttons a makeover, essentially making them bluer.

Here’s what the buttons will soon look like on sites around the web:

As pictured above, Facebook is also now giving webmasters the option to use the Like and Share buttons together.

While the change to the buttons may not be huge, the impact these buttons have on the web certainly is. Facebook says that combined, these buttons are viewed over 22 billion times daily across more than 7.5 million sites.

And Facebook says it’s seeing a “favorable increase” in likes and shares with the new design.

The new buttons will be rolling out over the coming weeks. Webmasters won’t have to do anything special, as they’ll be updated automatically.

    Interesting design move by Facebook. The bolder icons definitely stand out more on the page and if the new design leads to more click throughs then everyones winning.

    There is something wrong with the share button from my experience during the past week. When I “share” something it just pops up right over what I was sharing instead of going to the top of the page as it used to. What good is sharing something already on your timeline when your choice is “public” but no one else can see it…can’t get over this “new” thing.
