When I post just my profile picture on my personal Facebook page, I get over 100 likes in a matter of a couple of days. While that might feed my ego (not a good thing), it makes me wonder what my FB friends and family are thinking. When I post a meme, it is the same reaction, unless it is controversial.
When I post anything (with words) I consider to be important or profound (such as education, world peace, religion or even political issues), I get less than 10 likes (sometimes a little better). Now, I am not driven by likes, but I do notice the patterns.
So, I ponder these questions:
- Are Facebookers different from Bloggers (realizing that many do both as I do)?
- Do bloggers prefer short posts as opposed to long?
- If so, is it because people are busy and less is better?
- Or, do people just like images better than words?
I take the time to read posts (even long ones in social media), then I most often will comment if I can. I like a lot of stuff on FB and blogs, so that is why I wonder about others.
