Lightbulb The "Like" button

It is said there are over 1.3 Billion people on FaceBook.

So if 200 people "like" one of my pictures, I'm really not doing that well

It's quality, not quantity the matters. 200 discerning followers is better than 1.3 billion drones.

Re: The "Like" button

Been doing this nonsense since about 1957/8, I've given up worrying.

Nobody likes my pictures, well perhaps the wife 'sometimes'...I do it for me own satisfaction.

Pass me the gun please.

If you had 1.3 billion friends the number of likes would surely increase, or you could post a picture of an OOF cat!

Or a picture of your lunch before you ate it. Or a picture of yourself with a famous landmark in the background, taken with your iPhone on a selfie stick.

I think that facebook is so banal that the measure of a good photograph is the inverse of what would normally apply, i.e. the least number of likes the better!

Not so well as cats, unless they feature in a "What I'm about to eat for lunch" type shot.

Re: The "Like" button

I think I may have discovered the reason. There is no "like" button on Tapatalk ;-)
