Okay, I must ask the $64,000 question: What is the freakin’ purpose of the ‘like’ button?

The way I see it, it’s just the lazy person’s way to say “I saw it, I’m acknowledging to you that I saw your post, but I’m not interested enough to post my opinion of it or to see what it’s all about.”

Am I alone in this, or do others’ share my opinion?

The problem is, there are many times when I see more negative comments to a post than positive, but I do see a lot of likes. So… who’s going to get more attention; a bunch of ‘likes’ or a few negative comments. Do I have to do the math here?

As a newby to the posting world, I must acquiesce to the ‘like’ button, ’cause apparently, someone, somewhere sanctioned it to sway the powers that be on the internet.

So here we are, enslaved by the power of ‘like’, wondering why? What did you ‘like’? How could I improve upon my post in order to get you to say something more?

I must admit that shamefully, I have been known to press ‘like’, sadly yes, I am guilty, but I can count on one hand how many times that I pressed the almighty button without posting a comment with it. I mean, if someone went to the trouble of sharing it, and I truly did like it, shouldn’t I say why? Shouldn’t you?

Keepin’ on keepin’ on

Fatigue has set in. I ended up working a couple of nights in the middle of my week off, and boy are my arms tired!!!

Oops, where did that come from?

So, I sit here trying to fire up enough neurons to input some mind-boggling, soul-stirring, spirit-arousing tidbit of information and all I really want to do is sleep.

I saw a video that my son pasted on Facebook. I tried to embed the link, but it wouldn’t embed properly and my brain is too foggy to figure it out. So, here I bid you good night. The sole purpose of this post is to keep it going. So there, the going is kept.
