The thumbs up icon in Facebook is probably my most favorite tool. Considering the increasing amount of friends on Facebook, it is getting extremely hard to keep up considerable amount of communication with all. In fact I think I was much happier not knowing what half of my high school was up to. Information overload!
That’s where the ‘I like’ feature comes in so handy. I don’t have to write any comments or even pay as much attention to a thread by half a dozen people I don’t know. I can just like the photo or post or whatever and still let my friend know:
a. I saw the post/photo
b. I’m still an active friend
c. and the best of all - I don’t have to say what I REALLY feel :)
