It should come as no surprise to most people that social networking sites are essentially taking over the world and show absolutely no sign of slowing down any time soon, which makes the Mario Klingemann Like This Facebook Button that much cooler and ever so relevant.

The 'Like This' button is powered by Arduino, the open-source software that records the number of people who press the button. Artist Klingemann explains, "It is not connected to Facebook since for obvious reasons it is not possible to register a 'like' for another person without being logged in. Only the button design has been borrowed since it is such a cultural icon already and most people will immediately understand how to use it."

The Mario Klingemann Like This Facebook Button will be on display at the Ultra Social exhibition as part of Munich’s Urban Arts and Media Organization Festival. Stats for Social Media Art Installations Trending: Older & Mild
