From a FontShop Facebook photo, the FontShop profile asks the following question:
"Quick Poll: Facebook has introduced a way to include their "Like" buttons on other websites. Should we add them to FontShop.com pages so you can show your love for your favorite typefaces?"
I say no for the following reasons:
1. It will create another piece of information to process, digest, enter &c. when looking for fonts.
2. People will find a way to game the system to put more "likes" on fonts.
3. It will perpetuate the success of already successful typefaces and put newcomers at a disadvantage.
4. "Like" is so subjective that it's useless information. Typefaces should be selected based upon fitness for purpose, not weather you, or anyone else "like's" them.
IF implemented, users should be required to provide a valid reason. This reason will then need to be moderated and accepted (= hours of work) because people will simply say "just because." Just because McDonalds sells a lot of hamburgers doesn't make them "good."
