Facebook Unlike Button

Dear Computer Lady,

I have a problem with Facebook.

Like button each time I click it – says unlike.

How do you fix that? Bee

Dear Bee,

This is not a problem with Facebook that can be fixed, it is actually just a button that acts like a toggle switch.

It is kind of like your garage door opener, there is one button. When the garage door is closed, pushing the button opens the door. When the garage door is open, pushing that same button closes the door.

The “Like” button on Facebook works the same way. When you have not “liked” a post, clicking the “Like” button says that you like a post.

Once you have “Liked” a post, the same button allows you to change your mind and “unlike” a post.

I hope this helps you understand how the “Like/Unlike” button works in Facebook.
