Some "Likes" Have GOT To Stop On Facebook

I'm not going to front, I just liked something on my wall two seconds ago, but that still doesn't stop the fact that changes need to be in order. Obviously it's not that bad if I'm doing it, but still.

When the whole idea of "liking" something came around on FB, I wasn't being a hater. In fact, I kind of dug it. You can appreciate something a person did without letting them know via wall post, and the ever so creepy personal message. It's basically the opposite of what you guys do when I put up a link to a post on my wall. The line is starting to become evident though. Multiple times, I'll see someone say something along the lines of, "OMG, I hate the SNOW", and it'll receive like 37 likes. What? What the fuck was so likeable about the idea of hating snow. I'm pretty sure everyone 22+ hates the snow. It's not the "yo, I truly sympathize with that" button, it's the like button.

Before this post, I did some extensive (a solid 4 minutes) research on my own "liking" habits, and the results were startling...

No, they really weren't but it's one of those attention grabbing statements, so lets roll with it. I pretty much only "like" things that compliment me or things that are making fun of someone else. That's it. You won't see me liking much else other than that. Not saying I have it right, but there should be some fucking guidelines. Sure you can "like" something from afar and have an inward laugh, like when Suzy Sexybody is suddenly single, but don't click the button on that shit. It's in bad taste and downright offensive. Suzy won't be calling you up later that night because you were pumped her relationship ended--or will she? Does that shit actually work? If so, fuck. Anyways, I'm just saying, "like" freely, but with a limit. Create a line for yourself.

If you're teetering that line, you should probably move the mouse from that ol' "Like" button.

    Does clicking funny after half your posts apply to this rule?
