The Problem with the “Like Button”

Generally, I am a nice person and dislike complaining, but I am a little irritated. WordPress is a nice safe place to unleash your thoughts, but what gets under my skin is when people press the Like button to promote themselves. Sure thing, I can ignore it but I am only human. Like any normal human being I appreciate it when people genuinely like my content, but don’t appreciate it when people spam likes. To sum it up, no one likes fake followers and WordPress seems to have a lot of that. It doesn’t even bother me if people actually agree with me or not when they press the Like button. What matters most is getting my voice heard. For this reason, I have never really liked the Like button. Anyone can press it and you never know if they actually took the time to read it. For some people who are serious about their craft, writing takes time. Writing is an art form. Organizing your thoughts takes time. So please think before you press the Like button. Press it when you genuinely like it because some people like me take pride in their craft. P.S. To the girl who told me I have a nice blog. Thank you, I think you told me more than once but you probably forgot it because you spam it to every blogger to get more followers.

    šŸ¤Ø It is a sad fact, that there will always be bloggers who will press the ā€œLikeā€ button without reading a single word in our blog post.
