Rather than introduce changes to the buttons, it will simply change the technical framework for apps within Facebook so that rather than requiring you to click to share, comment or express sentiment, the app automatically broadcasts a status update for you.

Depending on how much interaction it triggers, that activity may also show up in your News Feed.
