Integrate "like" or "share" Facebook button to know if the visitor enjoyed the scoops, to know how many visit is not enough.
A ‘Like’ button would allow Facebook users to instantly subscribe to a topic and get updates with thumbnail pic and text excerpt in their newsfeed.
This would be a lot simpler for them than tracking down the curator’s Facebook page and following that, so a lot more readers could be expected to do it, which is good for everyone, as it would drive more traffic to the topic page. It would also mean some curators could do without a topic Facebook page, simplifying their lives.
(This idea was posted at http://feedback.scoop.it/forums/137223-general/suggestions/2364607-ability-to-like-a-topic-on-facebook but with a slightly unclear heading and explanation, so I’ve amended and reposted it.)
It’s possible for a Scooper to set up a Facebook page, encourage readers to ‘Like’ that page and publish tweet-like snippets to it using the Share option. But those steps could be avoided and the reader could get more alluring updates if they could simply ‘Like’ the topic page.
Of course, the idea remains to drive traffic to Scoop.it, and the small thumbnail and text excerpt should be better at doing this than current Share options. Critically, it is likely that many more people who stumbled upon a topic they liked would click the ‘Like’ button than bother to work out how to find and Like the curator’s Facebook page.
We’ve implemented native share buttons on your topics so that your readers (non-connected to Scoop.it) can easily share on Facebook, Twitter and G+.
Thanks again for your suggestions and votes.

Preferably, if the service will launch its the like, which can also be used as Facebook like

Your readers can "Thank" you for your Scoops on Scoop.it, as well as sharing them to all of their social networks by clicking on the Share button. Until we can look further into this integration, make sure to encourage that!

I have a difficult time scooping to Facebook. I receive a malware warning. Is there someway to resolve this?

One of the "beefs" about FB is that you can definitely dislike the info in a post - and it makes you not want to hit "like". We talk about having a "clocked that" button. Or something like "hideous" .. It might be novel to try on here.

Appreciation Button :)
It's imperative to change the current (and little recognised) 'share' icon - with the standard icon sets for Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn etc. This would dramatically boost shares from visitors. Right now, they seldom use this button, because it's not easily understood what it is.
what a good idea
No.. why do that???
