You Seriously Need to Stop Liking Your Own Facebook Posts
Mar 12, 2014 17:07
You probably have at least one Facebook friend who can't resist liking their own
statuses, photos, and/or comments.
What is it about this behavior that comes across as so off-putting? Below is a bunch of reasons why you should think twice before hitting that Like button on your own stuff:

of just you. And even if nobody 'Likes' your post, it's not the end of the world. Put it out there and move on. Chances are they might have checked out your post anyway but didn't find it as compelling as you expected.
