Please, like me!

Lately, I was speaking a lot with a friend about how social media "likes", "numbers" affects us and makes us compare to others. Many people get depressed or leave the creative carreer. Many make so much effort that get tired. And if you do not succeed , it is your own fault, you are not too good, too smart, you are doing something wrong, you need to make a bigger effort. Many artists and creative souls feel frustrated because they do not fit the "popular market". In the market of "likes" you loose your own path, your own voice, your own words, your own ART. I find so many great artists with so few likes and folllowers and the opposite example. And lately, I see some artists speaking about it, about this crazy driving towards "be liked" and it consequences for making something that feels good to you, not that others wait from you. "People conform to pro production to gain popularity and positive opinions by receiving online “likes”. They rewrite, edit their works to satisfy what the mass wants. Thus, it leads to overflow of conformity as everyone publishes identical works to attract these online “likes”. It hinders creativity and destroys people’s real characters. ...

The gaining online “likes” culture is antithetical with personal self-esteem, the “outside-in” idea and phenomenon should not be developed on a healthy social media and internet sharing. Some online research has indicated that people value online “likes” more than the actual value of these “likes” are.

Some online research has indicated that people value online “likes” more than the actual value of these “likes” are. The pay-for-like issue is one of the devastating factors that nurtures the “outside-in” culture. People are affected easily from what they see on the internet. If they find out anything that attracts the mass, they develop similar ideas to gain “likes” from internet users. Such culture is getting worse as we can easily see online “services” saying they can help you to gain “likes” on your online stuff. On the other hand, people demonstrate self-worth on the number of likes and followers. Some online research suggest people feel happier if they have more followers on their instagrams or if they have more Facebook friends. This destroys one’s moral value as it allows people to build up their self-esteem on virtual but not in the reality. Do you believe that online “likes” can buy true happiness? Think about it.

People should share things which make you different from the others, but not identical to the others. Today, people are lost in “outside-in” culture and they are no longer passionate to produce innovative works. This social networking scene should be deterred and people should quickly wake up and reckon this act is killing everyone in the society." text:…/what-do-online-likes-mean-t…/
