What does Like mean, anyway?

Deb's Answers

Does it mean different things to different people? Does it depend on the platform? Does it send mixed messages?


You can’t always take it literally, people will like anything on Facebook. At least I hope they are just using as a shortcut to saying I agree or I understand, instead of actually liking the bad news or sad status they just liked.

    Then put another button, agree button and unlike button.

  2. I am extremely impressed along with your writing talents and also with the format on your
    weblog. Is that this a paid topic or did you customize it your self?
    Either way stay up the nice high quality writing, it is uncommon to peer a great blog like
    this one nowadays..

  3. Whats up this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to
    know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to
    manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

  4. Hello, i think that i saw you visited my web site so i came to “return
    the favor”.I am attempting to find things to improve my
    web site!I suppose its ok to use a few of your ideas!
