Disliking The Like
Instagram is starting a new thing globally where they are going to hide the number of likes a post gets from it’s audience. To be clear, if you make a post, you will see how many likes your post gets. However, your public will not. Which begs the question, what is the value of a like, anyway? In this episode, Ric takes a look at how this may affect the internet famous. The influencers are kind of freaked about this turn of events. To which the rest of the world seems to not really care. This new idea also seems to re-visit the notion of the overall intrinsic value of social media from a person’s point of view. The keyboard cowboys will most certainly be offended anyway since these are the people who look for any reason to be offended. Plus, Ric’s unpopular thought of the week.
