When Plugins Go Rogue

I logged into UMW Blogs yesterday only to find this garrish header advertisement in my dashboard panel:
Screen Shot 2013-01-09 at 3.02.38 PMWhat the hell is this? Advertisement? On UMW Blogs! THIS IS AN OUTRAGE! And so forth.

I posted on Twitter to get see if anyone knew anything and it turns out, thanks to Scott Reilly and Kailey Lampert I quickly learned it was the Facebook Like Button.

So, it is now deleted from UMW Blogs, and shame on us for ever giving into the Facebook-inspired “Like” web. A useless plugin with a terrible ad to remind us of our sins, it seems to me a metaphor for the larger web right now 🙂
