Click “like” and give someone some cheap and meaningless validation!

WordPress has the absolute worst mobile app ever created. I used to be able to click on “reader” and see the posts by the people I follow. That no longer works and all it shows is the posts by every single WordPress user. So…I no longer check on posts by those I follow because I am not going to click on each of them individually. I’ve been thinking about social networking and people clicking “like.” I am positive that the only reason people click “like” is because they hope you will also click “like” on one of their posts. We all act like we “like” each other but we really don’t. We are all happy to get cheap and meaningless validation because that is what we give.
