Usually after I do a post I rarely pay attention the likes I get because I don't get any.
On Facebook I'm only friends with people that I talk to on a daily basis so I've only got 121 friends on it but if someone likes a status I do I generally just ignore it. On photos I ignore it as well but it does make me a bit happy when someone likes one of my profile pictures, can be a nice little ego boost when I'm in need of one! Retweets make me feel like I've accomplished something though because that means someone is sharing one of my INSANELY witty posts with everyone that follows them on Twitter.
For somebody to get a post liked by Toby they have to either make Toby laugh, be of an opinion that Toby agrees with or raise a good point within a debate.
Likes this, likes that. How many likes do I have? Do my friends like my posts? Who likes my status even though it doesn't make sense?
I do enjoy some likes once in a while, but I wish I can get someone to respond back instead of like. It does seem to make people happy (or angry).
I do like when I see something I like or when someone takes the words out of my mouth, but I would usually like things because I don't want to comment back because I have no idea what to say or it's really ridiculous.
In reality I don't see likes that much useful, of course it does help with some people, but does it really have a value in life. I just hope I don't become a like monster.
If someone "like"s a post or status or picture or anything I did, I instantly wanna shout "right on!" and brofist. I'm seriously that gay about likes. I can't help if it makes me feel appreciated and special It's kinda sad but at least I admit I have a problem. I don't intentionally dig for likes I normally just blabber on semi-coherently like I normally do and see how it goes over. But it's great when people agree with me!
As for me liking things, I'm kind of particular. They have to really amuse me in some way, or impress me. Then again I don't usually "like" the things that impress me; normally I just go "huh" and move on. But if it actually brought a smile to my face or a laugh, I do like to like it.
