Why?

Why is it that the College dropouts have success? Facebook? Microsoft?

Names everyone knows. Even Apple. But the people behind them are behind big nasty companies.

They speak cooperate speak, not English. Then we have nice friendly companies like Getglue and Dailybooth, who are properly qualified.

The difference? You’ll actually enjoy the people who works’ products more than these evil fat companies.

Like is kinda like boring now

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?
