Share it. Like it. Forget it.

How many likes for rarest pictures of some hot celebrity’s crap?

Click Share if you want the lazy arse government to help a poor lady who is struggling on the streets.

Can we get 1,00,00,kazillion likes before end of the month?

The term associated with this act is “attention whoring” or so I’ve heard. I’m sure most of you have seen all this atleast once in your life in form or other on the internet. The quality of some guy’s photo is based on how many “likes” it fetches on Facebook. On Reddit, its another story, reposts, posting old comments, posting youtube comments, showing off skin for some karma points. I don’t understand why is a imaginary point thingy or a click has become a big deal. I know people on my facebook who like every comment posted to their status and the ones who thank you just for liking the stuff they have shared. Some even feel proud that they have got so many likes on their photo. Do people really take Facebook that seriously that they think a like translates into a real world appreciation? ( Yes, I knew a guy who thought if you grow a big enough farm in Farmville, you will get a real farm somewhere as a reward but still ) If likes translate into real life appreciation, then is the other way true too? The closest I think of that in real life is doing stupid things or stripping off in public just for other people to see you and like you, sounds stupid doesnt it?

I like attention towards myself ( Not all the time though, for obvious reasons ). When I do something good, I always expect a pat on the back, a word of encouragement, a treat or something like that. I like it when I’m appreciated in person for anything. A pat in the back or a smile to your face means way more than some random clicks on a mouse.
