Dutch programmer Joannes Jozef Everardus van Der Meer is suing Facebook over its 'Like' button. Companies get sued all the time! Why do we care? Well, aside from having an A+ name, van Der Meer is actually...dead. He passed away in 2004, just as Facebook was beginning to take over the world. Why is he suing now?
If you're a Twitterer, you're probably very familiar with the favourite button on tweets. It's Twitter's equivalent to the Facebook 'Like' and a way to show appreciation to a good tweet, a weird tweet, a tweeted link or any tweet without replying or retweeting. It's fun and it works. It also could have been known as 'Thanks'.
