I will admit that confusion is part of the natural aging process, and that a true understanding of social media just isn’t possible for anyone born before yesterday.
Admitting that my birth occurred more than twenty–four hours ago, I therefore find myself woefully deficient in understanding the process on facebook of “liking” a corporation or business.
Now I realize that once the Supreme Court declared that corporations are people, that some people, especially women, have shifted their romantic affairs from a human counterpart to a company. You can understand this happening when you consider how a new pair of Prada shoes can bring a much greater feeling of ecstasy than looking at the slug on the couch who is busy watching ten straight hours of wrestling on TV.
And I can easily see liking a corporation or business. God knows I like the Wilbur Chocolate Company for everything they have done for me over my lifetime other than expand my waistline. But I just don’t understand why I would try to find them on facebook to click “like.”
What brought this problem to a head this morning was a new flashing sign at a business located a few miles from my home. The sign announced they were new on facebook and suggested that I go to their site and press the “like” button.
For the life of me, I do not understand why. The business was a small vacuum cleaner repair shop
