6 You, Carmen Ombasa, Steven Deckelman and 3 others
Crystal LC Huang Here are some attractive, if not interesting reasons so far I have collected (Please share your observations) !
Reason#1- Force you to like your own posts, for the FB Inc. does not want you to be lonely?
Reason#2 - Only "like" those who like your posts, so the FB Inc. will enact NCLB
(No Clickers Left Behind)?
Reason#3 - To please, glorify, or worship your bosses, your managers, and whoever has power over
you, so the FB Inc. can see who is on the top of the food chain?
Reason#4 - To be part of the great collective consciousness and maze, such as million likes to K.
Kardashian's butt/Beyonce's swollen tummy, your cat purchasing a new tiara, or your
baby's diapers tinted with Poopon, so the FB Inc. shall reinforce such a fantastic
Reason#5 - To show off what an adorable/hated/envied "smarter/nobler than you" genius, wise-man or successful snob
you are, so FB Inc. will enhance such an interesting human psyche to attract more clienteles ?
Reason#6 - To show that everyone is a socio-economic-political pundit, if not a junkie, if you want,
so the FB Inc. can prove that everyone can be (if not, will be) the current (or future?) US
Reason#7 - Self-mental therapy (safe valves?) to rant/cathart on your timeline, so FB Inc, indeed
reduces members in the overcrowded mental institutions?
Reason#8 - Daily/routine monologues and self-exposure to fill up Facebook company's memory
storage, so the FB Inc. is able to harvest the free, BIG, volunteered data and sell them
gingerly and wisely?
Reason#9 - For the FB stock holders, the FB Inc. will not let you down to maintain, if not boost up
FB stock market value, by any means?
Reason#10 - Welcome "secret agent men, such as FBICIA" to appreciate your contributions to ____?
A serendipitous feature of the FB Inc.?
Will be continued...

Crystal LC Huang After a short break, now continuing this dialogue (monologue?)
Reason#11 Watch out the saints, sages, wise-people who are reluctantly hidden under no "likes" or
minimally liked. Doesn't the FB Inc. need these tiny voices to counter balance its
hedonistic popular culture?
Reason#12 - The FB timeline user-producers can be lonelier than the FB info user-consumers.
Doesn't the FB Inc. wish that you are able to sympathize those spending time on
producing something for better-or-worse, and/or for diversity ?
Reason#13 - Aren't the FB timeline info or new-reel user-transmitters/sharers/taggers happy bees -
helping the hard working user-producers, within a second, viola, the great deed of
pollination - being done?
Reason#14 - Isn't the FB Inc. content that some of the fb users are proper pro-sumers (free, voluntary,
happy-slave), accelerating the FB business' profit exponentially?
Reason#15 - Aren't the FB Inc.' gamers the big lonely crowd, who make fortune, connections,
excitement, mental-healing...etc. on the cyberspace, and solve many types of social
problems, social inequality, virtually?
