NOTE: If you would like Facebook to log you in automatically in a return visit, click the, “Keep me logged in,” box before clicking, “Log In.”

 Step 2 - When you find a page, post, image, etc. that you enjoy, you can click the, “Like,” button. Facebook will automatically post on your page that you liked something, and inform the owner of that content that you like it.
