Is Facebook Like killing competition?

Are you becoming addicted to not just receiving but GIVING Facebook likes? Even websites like Mail Online have added it to their homepage, not just at the very top banner but also now next to every story link. I don’t know if other people do this, but I always make sure to read the Comments first before reading the article (if at all), now the comments link has become second-place to the Social signals that people apparently love. But I have something to confess, I really dislike – even hate – this kind of thing. And we all know that many people are addicted to Liking things, just to prove a point.

The Like thrill instantly transformed Facebook into an opposition. Before we’d analyze what number of “companions” we had. Presently each and every refresh is a clear slate for individuals to favor with a tap of the mouse. It additionally implied that a refresh could transform into a terrible inclination in the event that it sat there and got no preferences.

I felt like this was an unfortunate unforeseen development, however I instantly doubted the Like catch for an alternate reason: it was simply too simple. Something about the quickness, the straightforwardness, the careless idea of hitting that catch appeared, and still appears, somewhat deceitful to me. By the way, there is no way that Facebook will ever add a dislike button so don’t even think it!

What amount would you say you are truly “preferring” something on the off chance that you are just eager to give it unquestionably the briefest of activities that one can do? Does that development of my finger square with what I truly feel? Does it convey that feeling adequately to whomever shared the first post? There are times when uplifting news is shared and a surge of preferences surpasses a post, and I, found up in the swelling, rising tide of well wishing, feel a compelling impulse to participate and increment that number. In any case, I additionally scrape against that acclimating feeling, so I don’t click. Rather, I remark. Since 2009, I’ve made it a dynamic mission to transparently say the amount I like or love something in the remarks of a post. I’m certain nobody has seen my versatile conduct, however it improves me feel.

…Deciding to get some feedback from my coworkers, I sadly learned that commenting on an Facebook post without liking it could come off as a slight. That the number of “Likes” did carry a separate weight than the comments…

Deciding to get some feedback from my coworkers, I sadly learned that commenting on an Facebook post without liking it could come off as a slight. That the number of “Likes” did carry a separate weight than the comments… I absolutely understand how the evolution of social media leads to divisions in how people parse communication and interaction. I unfortunately also can’t change how I feel about action vs. intention. I don’t want to slight anyone by not liking their post. But I also don’t want to lie with my likes.

Hidden Meaning of Facebook Purple Flower Revealed

Do you remember when Facebook introduced the ‘flower’ reaction as a temporary thing almost a year ago? Well the social media behemoth is reportedly bringing back the little purple flower back for some of our social media profiles. At the time, no-one knew what it was for or what it meant – did it have something to do with de-flowering? Or maybe it was a throwback to flower power? We were all left wondering….

But the real meaning is actually really sweet. The flower reaction was to mark UK Mother’s Day which will be celebrated on 14 May in more than 80 countries all over the world. Unlike Father’s Day, this day is actually the same across the globe, with little variation of the date.

Anyway, now Facebook has decided to finally bring it back – and it’s known as the ‘thankful’ reaction, or ‘grateful’ for web and mobile users.

So it’s more of a digital gesture – as Facebook explained in 2016…

‘In honour of Mother’s Day, we are testing the ability for people in a few markets to leave a flower reaction.’

So there you have it – wonder no more!

Why is Facebook’s own Like Button page so difficult to use?

It would appear that many people are struggling to use Facebook’s own Like Button generator on their website – which is the reason that this website was created. To most people, terms like SDK and API are extremely arcane – and the eyes tend to glaze over at the first mention of them. So why is this the case?

The reason is likely because Facebook is staffed by developers, who often lack the insight that other people are less-than-technical. It is worth pointing out that Facebook’s PR team have gone to great lengths to make the company more user-friendly; anyone who tried to embed a Like button in 2010 can attest to this – it was an absolute minefield! Generally anything listed on https://developers.facebook.com should come with a warning to less-than-savvy users not working in tech.

If you need any further proof that Facebook isn’t user-friendly, then look at the meteoric rise of services like AddThis and ShareThis, which have bridged the gap between savvy developers and the everyday Joe Bloggs users. They have now got millions of users, and all they do is make it easier to embed third-party services into your website; ultimately their usage should have dwindled but Facebook and other social media tech firms clearly haven’t made enough inroads to resolve the problem. Not that we are complaining – this website was created due to the demands of users looking for a simple, all-in-one solution to adding a Facebook Like button to your website at no cost.

Just a final word to those who are paying for their Facebook Like button customizations – time to demand a refund! Watch this space as this website will shortly be rolling out a plethora of new features that will render paid-for services completely redundant.
