It's strange how most of us don't realize how we're being conditioned more and more to live for social acceptance. It's enough already, for those with no friends and family to be viewed as "losers" and "outcasts" in real life. But now they experience it in the cyber world too. I personally love the feature of "liking" status's on Facebook and Grasscity, but look at it from that angle for a second. It's a way to accentuate the social rankings we live with. When your on facebook, do you read the status with 34 likes or one that's got no replies? (speaking of people we don't know in this case). Deceptively and most likely unintentionally, it's the creators of the world's most visited websites (i.e. Facebook/Youtube) making sure who's in charge, stays in charge. The person/business with more likes will attract more people, in turn making new friends, leading to more likes/business in the future. Making the social people more social , and the "losers" more "loserlike". And the "wealthy" more "wealthy", and the "popular" more "popular". We may be getting closer and communicating with more people via internet, but we're also getting farther and farther from equality. Just a thought to ponder..
