Take it from blogger Drew Scott.
'Do you think the Facebook guy will give me any money?' asks Cat, fishing for quarters in her bid to purchase a full share in a can of Tecate.
In introducing two more passionate options, Facebook would be diminishing the importance of that mealy-mouthed middleman, "like." And isn't it true that even if you don't like someone, you may deeply love them.
What's funny about living in this day and age is that most of us seem to simultaneously be dependent on modern technology and be frustrated with how it's transformed areas of our lives that were already stressful enough without it -- i.e. dating, relationships, and confrontation.
I'm not talking about losing the ability to "be in the moment" -- an overused phrase often dropped by those opposed to social media movement, and one that I see as weak ammunition. What I'm afraid we've lost is not the ability to be in the moment, but the ability to just be.
14. I don't like it because we slept together a few weeks back. Better to lay low for now. 15. I don't like it because I liked your last 3 posts and now I've got to play hard to get.

My ears bleed and I suffer in silence when I'm schlepping a carful of tweens to the beach or to the movies. When these girls are not singing along to Ariana Grande and Iggy Azalea, my senses are being bombarded with a symphony of "likes."

A teenage girl is worth so much more than the amount of likes on her Instagram picture, or the amount of followers she has.
Thumbs up and thumbs down have become the ubiquitous symbol of like and dislike; good and bad; continuation and end; virtual life and death in our digital world.
