'Like' this, but not that?! A Facebook Rant
I share most of my writing with my Facebook friends. Especially if it has to do with my life or people in my life. I like to share that part of myself with them. Recently, I've been using a lot of my own pictures for articles. Pictures I've taken recently and edited to be super cool. So when I share these things on Facebook, they're not only things I've written but they're also accompanied by something else I've created, which just rocks my socks off. Very recently on Facebook, I changed my profile picture and the header to pictures I've taken and altered. One of them I used for this article. This was done right after I had shared some writings including another of my pictures. Something like 20 people 'Liked' my picture changes but only 2 'Liked' my writing.
It really frustrates me when things like this happen. Part of me just wants to blame Facebook and their stupid feed. My profile picture change probably showed up on people's feeds but not some random article I linked. Why? Who knows. I can't think that my friends and family are ignoring it; that'd just be cruel. Surprisingly, it's generally Will's mom and sisters that 'Like' my writing, no matter what it's about.
