I’d love to know the thought process behind some of these likes.

    Sure it’s called a “like” but it’s a thumbs up for a funny/profound comment or for support… I just killed the joke, didn’t I?

    • Not at all. I genuinely never saw it that way until I received similar comments on this strip. I can’t say that it makes it look any less strange to me, but hey. The more you know.

        From 1984 regarding Newspeak.

        People are having a harder and harder time expressing themselves.
        Also: people have fewer options to express themselves (withing facebook). All there is a like. No “thanks for posting” or “I like you”, just “like”.

        Also, like Vaino mentioned, it can be hard to explain the context. You see this alot on youtube when somebody posts a vid about something bad (Tsunami in X-Land). People are grateful that it was uploaded but don’t like the content (Tsunamis are bad) so the likes vs dislikes are wonky.

    It is worryingly easy to accidentally “like” something while scrolling through Facebook mobile on a touchscreen phone now, I find.

    Love the little details you put in your work, like the guy who is posting a Gandhi quote.

  • McFishington

    Or that guy is just totally chill with cancer.

  • Nezi

    As my father was just diagnosed with cancer and my family’s last name is Higgins. I find this post mighty suspicious.

  • Guest

    Good guy Ruben Pracas, quoting Gandhi.

    • HOW

      How can you even read what he wrote? o_O

  • katja elisa

    and again (article about planecrash with 150 victims in France):

    I understand that it’s meant as ‘support’, but I still will never put a like on a bad post like this. It being called a ‘like’ and the big dumb thumbs up makes it feel really insensitive.
