There are events in life you just can’t prepare for. I recently discovered that volunteer DJ’ing a dance for NYC teenagers is one of them.
Even armed with a pre-approved music playlist, I quickly found there’s no “silver bullet” song that pacifies a group of 200 high schoolers. It doesn’t exist. Especially one with a wide variety of cultures and backgrounds.
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, WhoLikesToLikeYou discovers that one person who likes you the most and allows you to send a virtual valentine in appreciation.
All of us crave “virtual validation” of the content we publicly post on social networks. Because we feel the need for validation of our posts, we tend to evolve the content and style of our communication based upon the responses we receive and quality of responders. It’s as if we have a completely biased focus group on-hand to test our thoughts, creativity and personality in real-time.
As an example of our communication being evolved, think about the last time you posted something humorous and nobody responded (hey, I’ve been there) with a like, comment or share. Did the lack of response impact you? Did “humorous” posts you made the following week, month or even year look much different because of the earlier experience?
To those who like us regardless of our silly, boring or uninteresting posts, we say…Happy Valentine’s Day!
