10 Reasons Why People Like Your Posts

Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or wherever you post, people are gonna “like” or “favorite” your posts. But with the abundance of friends, one gets confused about the real reason each person holds behind his/her “like”.

After experiencing for more than five years in online relationships and social networking , I can share with you my humble observations of what “likes” can really say:

1- I’m your best friend, I’ll always be here for you buddy.

2- I’m your sister/brother/cousin, this “like” is a family support system, don’t forget!

3- I just posted a pic, so I will like yours now, don’t forget to like mine.

4- Oh, you just liked my pic!  There you go, here’s your reward, thx!

5- Hmm, it’s that person that always likes my pix for no reason, sure here’s a “like” loyal fan.

6- It was nice seeing you after a long time, here’s a “like” to get us back on the friendship road!

7- I have a crush on you!

8- I’m so fucking jealous that I’m gonna like this picture to show you that I’m so fucking cool with it.

9- Haha! I’ve finally liked your picture, just because this one doesn’t include you!

10- Oh! Nice pic!

It’s Not So Easy!

Chevrolet Arabia’s ad for the new Cruze is one of the ads that I’ve been watching on TV and got my attention from the first time I saw it. I could easily relate to the parent/son situation, and understand the value of connecting through music; really clever putting. However, the problem that the ad has is the song itself! The funny thing is that it is not because the song is a bad one, but because it is exactly the opposite of bad, the song was so good into an extent it overshadowed the ad’s message. Check out some of people’s comments on the Ad on YouTube in the picture below:

The song was made especially for the ad by William Rottman. I guess Chevrolet didn’t want to use an already existing hit song in their ad, so it won’t take away the ad’s success. Ironically, the song that they made took them to the same dark road that they were avoiding to go to with their new Cruze!

Bottom line, one cannot be too careful, or else he’ll fall into the same mistake. It’s not so easy to be a Marketer.
