I am adding new section to my site where students or alumni of a particular film schools can be associated with their schools. Facebook did something similar in the early days and later they went with "Like" button that opened that option to anyone. Granted, I could just add my own "Like" functionality and spare a user from a learning curve but before I do that I thought I'd cast the following question into the wide pool of entrepreneurial talent on this site:
What are other "Like" alternatives?
EDIT: I should've shared more what I intend to do. Some folks that will 'link' or 'associate' their profiles with these 'groups' will be posting projects. At the bottom of the page I'll add a section listing 'projects by ...'
Maybe I should call it "Friend of ..." whatever school, than the projects will be "Projects by friends of the school". Not sure though that it is simple enough...
