The button, which launched in April at f8, Facebook’s developer
conference, is now present on roughly 2 million sites around the web,
from sports sites to news organizations and many other kinds of
publishers.

The Facebook “Like” button, however, might be bringing Facebook closer
to competing with Twitter in the area of referral traffic, though.
Since the button launched and was integrated on millions of sites,
many publishers are reporting large increases in traffic specifically
due to this kind of social plugin. ABC News reported a 190% increase;
Gawker’s traffic shot up by 200%; Sporting News said their site
traffic was up by a shocking 500%; and NBA.com said that Facebook had
become their second-largest referral source.
