Facebook 'like' button gone wrong

i gonna continue my rants here. Since i kinda annoyed seeing points i brought up in facebook being liked when im expecting a discussion or conversation.

Facebook supposed to be a social hub, currently it is more of pinboard or art exhibition. Where people come and say "i like it!" and done.

At times when people were announcing something bad "my cat is missing" or "my cactus just died" some of morons did clicked the 'like' button. I know like can be seen as 'noted' or 'i support u'

People nowadays are all politicians (including me), we play safe and avoid two way conversation. We just want people to 'listen listen listen' but no arguing, no objections. Well i can see that is totally healthy, we don't want to see emo statuses on facebook as well, right? But in a way,we are avoiding conversations. And conversations are necessary in resolving conflicts. No wonder nowadays i see more and more people just put up emo statuses toward each other. (and here i am, eating popcorn enjoying the scene)

For example, below are facebook statuses of Ali and Abu after they 'selisih bahu' over a thing.
Ali's : "Biarlah orang salah faham dengan kita, tapi kita cool, Allah knows. :')"
Abu's : "Susahnya orang perasan good-good ni. Positif manjang, sampaikan buat salah pun tak reti-reti nak sedar."

Halo? Ali and Abu kalau nak bergaduh berdepan boleh tak? kalau konon malas nak gaduh, tak usah letak di status facebook kasi satu dunia tahu. Mengadu dengan orang sebelah sudah.
(nota:sila baca dengan nada calm, penulis senang terpengaruh dengan gaya bahasa blog yang dia baru khatam)

I remember reading a blog, (kak senduk's i think), he said that when u were asking opinion like "did anybody knows who sells blueberry crepe around here?" and what he received, just likes.

Imagine going out of the street
"pakcik tahu tak mana masjid terdekat"

and the pakcik smiles and say "LIKE!"

We can understand why being on Facebook might inspire one to try and turn the conversation to more serious matters. A global network fueled entirely by users' self-absorption and their desire to pretend to be farmers can't help but make you want to throw out a few reality checks. But when you're battling for attention against an endless stream of cat videos and "Me and my girlfriends doing body shots" photo albums, no one's going to click like on your attempt to elevate people's minds. If you're lucky, your words will fall on deaf ears.  credit
