Facebook is always trying to come up with ways to promote pages, and they may be testing a feature that was recently added to mobile on desktop.

The big “like” button also appears when a friend (or another page you follow) tags another page in a post:

That’s what it looks like on the iOS app. Now, Facebook looks to be testing a similar feature on desktop, allowing users to like pages from the news feed.

Has anyone else seen this new “Like Page” feature on their desktop news feed?
