"Like" button giving error message.

This started a few days ago, I think. If I try to click on the "Like" button, I an error message that says, only, "An error occurred." Not very informative. It happens on all of my computers.

We are in the midst of a full conversion from HTTP to HTTPS. When you find yourself on HTTP, the like button will fail. If you ensure that you are logging into the https site (you can manually change your bookmarks) it will work.

What does this mean to the average Jane/Joe Doe? I do www.flyertalk.com, then log in. I literally do not pay attention to whether it's a http vs a https. I would say most people don't.

BTW - I think a like fail is a good thing LOL

Cheers.
