Like is kinda like boring nowPosted: January 30, 2011
The work like has boomed on Facebook and onto nearly every other website in existence. Although, the word ‘like’ is getting boring. Plus i’m really getting a little narked on “liking” everything. Although, some lovely websites have done some alternatives to this. If you’re making a website, try and use a thesaurus and pick a better word than ‘like’, for example there is ‘love’, ‘smile’, ‘thumbs up’ and many many more! Just think!
One example is the popular website “Formspring” where users ask each other questions. Recently they added the “Smile” button, which basically acts in the same function as liking stories on Facebook, although the alternative verb makes a lot more thought go into actually pressing that button, instead of the drone of “like”, “like”, “like”.
What are your thoughts on this?
