L is for Like. No, I am not talking about any affinity stuff but I am talking about that ‘Like’ button on Facebook which has transformed the actual meaning of this term. The Like button has come handy for the people who want to keep a tab on others lives but not actually bother to communicate with them.
Some key features about Like button are:
- You can let your presence feel in the virtual world without taking the hassle of actual communication with your friends, relatives or any random person and still keep in touch.
- This button can be used to reciprocate appreciation or 'liking' in virtual world. Liking each other’s status, posts & photographs sometimes are mere symbolism of ‘Scratching each other’s back’!
- Invariably, A person professionally on a high position or a celebrity gather more number of likes even on their below average ‘wall staring’ snaps. You can butter up your boss by liking all his trash and even can feel yourself lucky that Facebook has made your life so easier….Imagine if have to 'like' everything about your boss in real life – face-to face!!
- Spammers have found their way to hit the net-users with this ‘like’ weapon randomly. Many times you see a photograph posted on your wall of religious deity or famine hit children asking .pleading/threatening for a simple like from you. How can anyone express their devotion by a like button, or for that matter how would those disaster hit people would get help with your like?
- Like button is very helpful when you are lacking time or interest to give a simple compliment to anybody’s photograph. It also works when you actually do not want to appreciate at all….a and liking it in real mode is too difficult.
- However, I strongly feel that Facebook should put up some ‘Unlike’ button as well. I am sure I would be using it so frequently!
- Constantly liking all post, updates, photographs & videos of your latest crush might make him/her notice you.
- Statutory warning: You might depressed with less number of likes received on your wall or might even feel jealous of others who overflow with 'Likes'
