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… 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.
