My affair with the Like Button

Years ago while out antiquing for treasures, I happened up a huge cup.
It was an antique transferware mush cup. The image was a man's face smiling insanely, with the words around the rim of the cup, " I like it, I like a lot "
I can remember thinking to myself, yep, that's me, I like it, in fact I do like a lot.
As an daily Internet surfer, I still like a lot.
Only in this technological age, I can let the world know when I like something, with just a click of the button.
And, that button is always there, like a beacon, as though to say, " come on, you know you like me "..and click, there's my answer , " yes I do ! "
The other day I decided to manually post a video link on my Face Book page, instead of the usual click,  " add to face book  " button.
I stared at my face book page a long time, and it became apparent to me, that it had a new appearance, due to my , " I like " addiction to the like button without thought as to what or who will see it.
I was amazed that I saw so many things in one day.
Then, at the same time, I realized my Face Book page became a networking page , the same as my Twitter page.
Well, at first I was so shocked to see I had been out of touch while surfing and liking all the things wonderful things I see.
And then, I thought to myself, that's me.
Plain and simple.
I search the net as though looking for the knowledge of how things are and were and will be to come, and when I see something worth noting, I like it.
It's a huge world sitting there in front of me on my desk. All of it contained in a thing that looks like a TV screen.
I suppose I am at a cross roads now.
I think to myself, my my, what should I do now.
I have made so many friends on the net that are on my Face Book page and ning sites, social sites and so forth that perhaps I have become like a commercial.
And then, I think to myself, I will stop this right now, no more clicking that like button,
but, no, it's too late.
Because, I honestly do like a lot and loving every minute of it.
The Internet world is a huge Universe, full of knowledge, beautiful things and adventures too.
Full of friendships of people whose hands you will never touch and yet fills your heart with that emotion called friendship .
And so, no wonder I like it, in fact, I more than like it.
 Let's add a " I love it " button :-)
Cause, I love it, I love it alot
