Last night, I almost walked out of my first movie the year.
But morbid curiosity kept my ass parked in the seat and my eyes fixated on the screen. This movie has to get better — I thought to myself. It just has to. So, I decided to stick it out until the very end.
Big mistake. It didn’t get better. It got worse. Way worse.
What does it mean on social media to click the “like” button? Liking something may not always mean what you think.
Everyone wants to be liked.
On social media, likes are the metric used to measure popularity. Likes are an affirmation of mass approval. Admit it — we’ve all checked to see if someone liked our posts. When you see a dozen likes, it feels pretty good. When you see zero likes, it kinda’ hurts. Social media has become a coterie of high school cheerleaders.
