Like me! Like me! Like me!
Well, everyone is on Facebook these days and we all know how “likes” work. I have a Facebook page along with a personal page, as it makes sense to keep family and silly stuff separate from work and official stuff. I do like things on Facebook, I actually “like” quite a lot of things… But…
If you’re going to send me a message via my Facebook page with a link to your page and the words “please return the like”, I’m not being funny, but you’re putting me on the spot. What if I follow the link and I don’t really like your stuff or it’s really not to my taste, but it’s OK. If you’re going to send me a link to your stuff and you want me to check it out ask me to do just that. Then there’s no pressure and if I like it, I’ll “like” it. It’s scary the number of messages I get where it’s “I’ve liked you, now like me”. Plain and simple, I don’t trade “likes”. I like what I like.
You can “like” me, if you like me at https://www.facebook.com/lieto or if you don’t like me, I’m sure our dog Finlay would love some love. https://www.facebook.com/finlay.mcboo I’m not the type to roll around when my belly’s tickled, but he definitely is.
