How Many Times Did You Hit the Like Button Today?
May be countless, or you forget to count it or you did it without think much. Have you ever think about the meaning or message hidden behind the Like button?
What is The Meaning of Like Button or Thumbs Up Button?
The seemingly harmless ‘Like Button’ (thumbs up sign) in social media portals holds some hidden messages that may not be evident even to the most observing kinds. We do not take it to be anything more than a gesture, when in fact it is more than just a gesture.
A Hit on Thumbs Up Button Should Not Be Given Casually
Each time, when we hit the button, we agree with another person’s views and opinion on a certain subject. It is an expression of our support. Mostly, comprehension of the posts precedes the action of hitting the like button.
But chances are also there for instances where we end up in voicing our support to some views cleverly hidden within the posts or rather distorted and incorporated into the posts.
And this comes to our notice when we find ourselves dragged into an unwelcome discussion or a debate and we realize the like we hit ended up in voicing our support for views that we in fact do not support. So, wouldn’t filtering our likes be a really sensible thing to do.
The ‘Beak less Bird’ That Can Fly High
A creative look would reveal the image of a beak less bird in the symbol of the thumbs up button. The beak less bird represents a silent support but it is also worth reminding ourselves that the beak less bird also has wings. Wings that can take the views (both the good and the bad ones) high up into the sky.
