Things I might be trying to tell you when I click the “like” button on Facebook

“I saw what you wrote, and I want to acknowledge that you wrote it, but I have nothing clever or important to add.”

“I disagree with you, but this is obviously important to you and I’m impressed by your enthusiasm.”

“This is wonderful!  I love it so much!  It is hilarious, sweet, inspiring, and/or I am so happy for you!”

“You have posted a link to something I should probably watch or read to improve my mind, but I am reading this on my phone and I’m close to my data limit.  There is no way I will ever remember to come back to this later, but thank you for trying.”

“My finger slipped.”

“You liked something of mine and I want to return the favor.”

“I don’t really get the joke, but a lot of other people liked it, and I don’t want to be left out.”

“You don’t post often enough, and I want to encourage you to write more.”

“I like this.”

… or some combination thereof.  They really should add more buttons.

    (I don’t mean my “Like” as being smart-assy. I actually like this, ie. “This is wonderful! I love it so much! It is hilarious, sweet, inspiring, and/or I am so happy for you!”)

    (I would like to use the word “smart-assy” more often. Not necessarily to you. It’s more of a global desire.)
