Sure, most of us have “Liked” something from the web on Facebook st some point, but do you want to “Like” real-world things and post them on your Facebook profile? Diesel thinks you do, and is rolling out a new Facebook Like system in its stores in Madrid, Spain with plan to expand the service across Europe if it catches on.

So what does a real-world Like look like?

Diesel has scattered QR codes throughout its Madrid store beside products. If you see a pair of pants that you like, or a sweet shirt you just have to have, scanning the code beside said items will launch a page where you can Like that fashion item on Facebook and check out others like it.

What do you think? Would you scan a code in stores to Like things on Facebook?
