I have only been on this site about 6 or 7 weeks and have all ready run into problems with this little button. First it hasn’t worked on my phone for about 3 days now it just says loading but works fine on my computer.
The like buttons purpose is supposed to be used if you like a post not to boost your stats like quite a few bloggers I have run into seem to use it for. I don’t however have a problem with that they can do what ever they want with their own blogs. A couple of weeks ago I fell into the addiction trap. I would find a blog I was interested in like a couple of pages and leave a comment or 2 and go look for other sites that interest me. I had a few blogger come back to my site and replete what I had done to there site then one of us would start following and the other would do the same. This is where I got into trouble. I had to quit following 2 bloggers yesterday and am thinking about another one. It was getting out of control quickly I would wake up in the morning to 35 to 40 emails full of post these people were making. Some of these people were posting 8 or 9 times a day. Some of those were re post from years back. One person was re posting for other persons site which I think is a nice thing to due but not 15 to 20 post a day. This one I watched closely yesterday and the first re post they did would get 60 or so likes but by the end they were only getting about a third that many.
The reason I started posting on here had nothing to with becoming popular and I actually read the post I use the like button on or comment on. There is no way these power bloggers as I call them can can respond to 70 or more different sites a day and read all of the content unless they spend 24 7 on here.
This has nothing to do with this post but as a side note if you are thing about using windows 8 touchscreen which I do beware this program eats data very quickly even with most of the live tiles turned off I have a 8 GB plan and could easily use that up in two weeks. So I have to use the wifi over at the clubhouse a couple of hours a day and 4or 5 hours during the weekend. If you have a cable connection you will be OK though.
