Facebook Needs Dislike Option for Lamebook

Like most 20-somethings who went to college during the rise of this social media monster, I am quite familiar with Facebook. However, I wasn’t aware of the website Lamebook until the current legal dispute began. Lamebook, a self-proclaimed, “humor blog” was designed to allow people to share the most “ridiculous” things posted on Facebook. The Lamebook website is a satirical reflection of Facebook using similar colors, layout, and a variation of the Facebook mark.

Facebook, apparently not one to take a joke, requested that Lamebook cease use of its highly similar looking website and mark. The confrontation has led both parties to file lawsuits regarding the matter.
