just want to let you guys know I don’t think I’ll be using the
new dislike button around here... at all…
get the intention behind it. Sometimes we share stories that don’t
feel good… losing a loved one, learning of an illness… and the
idea is that it isn’t something we like, and such a button allows
us to show support for each other by expressing “I don’t like
here’s the thing… we have the ability to post comments… we have
the ability to send private messages… and many of us, as friends,
have e-mail addresses and phone numbers… so if we want to send
a note, say something, or reach out to each other, we can.
don’t want to dislike something. I don’t want to be negative about
something. If you use your posts to show us what came off the
grill for dinner tonight… to tell us about something awesome your
kids did... to make us aware of an article, joke, or something
funny... to bring some attention to your own accomplishments…
then GOOD FOR YOU! I’m all for it. Let’s have some fun and enjoy
has allowed me to do things that I wish I could have done 20 or
30 years ago. Stay connected with friends… heck, re-connect with
friends... and just in general get some news about you folks that
I might not have learned or been aware of otherwise. And I wish
I could exchange more with you than I get to.
not saying a dislike button is a bad thing. I am not asking you
to not use it if you are so moved. Please… go ahead… use it. I’m
just hoping we can all take that one extra second before clicking
on it, and somehow keep things positive and supportive.

of you may have heard that Facebook is introducing a new button…
and soon, along with like and share and so on, according to the
reports I’ve seen, you will be able to dislike.
is something I posted to Facebook about it.
nothing special. I’m just tired of people that get angry and strike
out in negative ways toward people, and I’m hoping that some users
don’t get “dislike” happy, and start clicking it for things as
like I said… if you use it, great, it’s there to be used. Just
show some consideration for others.
