To the people who like their own Facebook statuses, I have one simple question: why?
Please tell me. Are you desperate to have people liking your well-thought of and meticulously researched status (and you researched by googling for “love quotes” – but hey that took up seven minutes of your time, plus that Angelfire page crashed your Internet Explorer and that counts for something, right?) that you have to jumpstart the process by liking it yourself?
Let me get something straight here, people. By posting something on Facebook, it implies that you like it. Okay? This is almost as bad as tagging people in an unfunny picture taken from Tumblr, but you know, at least it doesn’t require your friends untagging themselves from some typography post with the same love quote (also it would be hilariously misquoted to, I dunno, Mikhail Gorbachev) on it. Or John Lloyd Cruz’s face. Okay, I don’t see any reason for people to untag themselves from John Lloyd’s face, but you get my drift.
This is going to be my profile picture.
“But- but- Ade, posts won’t like themselves!” Okay, okay. Maybe you’re so excited with your thoughts that you can’t help but like it as soon as you posted it on Facebook. Also, I know it’s your Facebook and you can do whatever fucking thing you want with it. Fine, I’ll give you that. But you know, there are limits to liking your own posts. Imagine opening Facebook one day and seeing this:
Yeah, I’d punch myself in the balls too. What about you guys? What do you think of people liking their own Facebook posts? Do you like your own Facebook statuses? Let’s hear it from you guys in the comments!
