App Filters What Pages You’ve “Liked” On Facebook: Why Isn’t This A Facebook Feature?

February 13th, 2011 02:57 admin Leave a comment Go to comments

The meaning of a Facebook Like has been getting more and more vague ever since Facebook changed the wording from “Become a fan” to “Like” on Facebook Fan Pages. What’s even more frustrating than this is that there’s no simple way, aside from visiting the “Activities,” “Interests” and “Other Pages” part of your Facebook profile, to figure out what Pages you have liked in the past. In essence: It’s complicated.

As many Pages employ tactics in order to “force” people to like stuff (in order to access content for example), it’s about time users had a simple way to view and manage what they’ve Liked, especially as the new Facebook “Sponsored Story” features cull information from your Likes in order to show ads to your friends.

As scrappy as it is, the MyLikesBox Facebook app shows you the Pages you’ve Liked, lets you sort by them category and allows you easily remove Pages you’d like to un-Like (Note: webpages that use Open Graph tags also show up as Likes, because Facebook holds them equivalent to Pages).

I have no idea why Facebook has yet to build something like this, especially as Like button use becomes a more and more predominant marker of brand engagement. And while I wish the MyLikesBox tracking was more comprehensive than just Facebook Pages, i.e. it showed me every article and status update and person I have ever liked, Pages is a good start, for now.

Proof: Through the use of MyLikesBox, I have un-Liked at least two pages I hadn’t really meant to Like. Like.

You can try out the app here.
