65 Million Users Like Facebook’s Like Button Everyday

Facebook has, like, totally been garnering some serious attention with this Like Button.

AllFacebook.com reports that nearly 65 million Facebook users click the Like Button, like, every single day.  (I’ll spare you for the rest of the post). According to the website:

Good gravy that is a lot of people.
