Time for an actual rant. I just reactivated my Facebook a few months back and since then, I've come across this new trend of people begging other people for likes. This shit is just as poor as people caring and begging for reps over here. I mean, seriously, why would you beg somebody to like your photo? If I like it, I'll like it, you don't need to tell me to like it.
I'll start with this guy who I last met two years back and I guess this was the first time we were having a conversation since I last met him. We have a nice little conversation until he asks me to 'check his profile picture out'.
So we're speaking to each other after a gap of two years and instead of having a nice chat, he wants me to like his profile picture first. Seriously, WTF?
Next up is this chick who I was chatting with for the very first time. And just when she's about to go offline, she drops me a message regarding the same fucking thing.
Well, she was a woman, and a pretty fine one, so I had to oblige that time.
But still, begging someone to like their profile picture while chatting with them for the very first time is pretty lame.
So it was my birthday, and an old classmate of mine inboxed me wishing me a happy birthday. Then, he wishes me luck for my examination results. And guess what happens next?
That's not in English, so I'd like to translate the obvious - 'Dude, like my profile picture'
And this final case is of a random stranger and I have no idea how he ended up in my friends list. Here's what he does
Excuse me, but do you even have the decency to introduce yourself before you start with your begging shit? Just because I'm a Curtis Axel fan, it doesn't mean that a 'Hey' would do any justice. He was just destined to get his ass owned. And a competition? What sort of a jobless jack would have a competition based on likes on Facebook?
And that's not all, I've got atleast five to six more people begging me to like their picture. And not only that, I've actually come across people acting like big shots and arguing how they've got more likes than the others in those comments sections. What in the actual fuck? What's wrong with the society these days? Go get a job, do shit and make people actually like you instead of begging them to like your lame photos on social networking sites.
