May 6 (Sa) 2017. Pop quiz for today; A short answer, regarding "Like"...

Crystal LC Huang
Pop quiz for today: A short answer
What and why does Facebook Corporate company want to Manipulate your/others' posts by this intriguing button called "Like"?

LikeShow more reactionsCommentShare
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
                  popular culture?
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 Your turns to share?? Am I in my early dementia - mistakenly thinking that this is an  on-line class' collaboration !?

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?
Stay tuned...

Crystal LC Huang Just found an old poster. Isn't the philosophy of "like" amazing - of the mass? Can you deny the power of Media-"Populism" which has been so successfully executed in the political arena and the commercial world !?

This feline Art professor has better pedagogy than that of mine !
Does any educator, in particular, Arts, have this extreme type of luxury to inspire pupils - via this one-on-one, f2f model (only for those upper social elite classes?), instead of the big-class-size, remote/cheap fashion? (Excluding those who HAVE to learn from distance).

Feb. 29 (M), 2016 "Learn/teach UNDER the Armed"

Xena Crystal Huang

~ Education No-Border Series ~ #6

Pop-quiz for tonight:     "Learn-n-teach under the Armed"
Is teaching/facilitating Natural Sciences safer than that of Social Sciences?

Or put in this way : Is teaching/facilitating Social Sciences (if with "critical thinking" competencies) an endangered business?

Here are some guidelines for faculty's safety posted on the Chronicles of Higher Education:

A PowerPoint Slide Advises Professors to Alter Teaching to Pacify Armed Students
The Faculty Senate president at the University of Houston suggests that his colleagues "drop certain topics" from their curricula after a campus-carry law takes…
3You, Will Sanborn and Leigh Hong

Xena Crystal Huang

The following PowerPoint slide was excerpted from the above article. It reminds me an anecdote that a while ago, brother Ben came to visit me. I invited him to my ITV (Interactive TV) "Sociology" classroom. He sat in the student area, and I was busy at the ITV workstation.

When I was discussing some hot button issues with the far sites' students as usual, my brother showed some uneasiness and continuously made some tiny gestures like warning signs to me.

After class, I asked my brother, "Are you O.K.? Something bothered you?" Brother Ben worried so much and said, " I was nervous and sweating when you talked to students with those 'dangerous topics'..." and suggested me to drop those "race, ethnicity, social class, sexual orientation, religion, and stratification issues" with students for fear that some unhappy students might retaliate upon me...

You know, brother Ben's major, obviously, was not Sociology...

Blood is thicker than water :)!

A side bar episode: as fish is the least creature to understand water in a fishbowl, and less likely to choose to leave it, I seldom give my "fish-bowled-water" a 2nd thought, and just do as a sociologist educator supposed to do.

So, well well, in retrospect, brother Ben's prediction did happen in many forms in different contexts over many years of my serving as a social science educator in the US, but not as a visual art adjunct. One of the events was gone too far and I had to pull up all my guts as a minority faculty (in terms of race/ethnicity) to collect sufficient evidence to make a case for a solution to keep myself sane. Another long story to tell. But I should skip now.

Maybe when my Anecdotes are put together in the near future regarding all the twists-n-turn and ups-n-downs adventures in the US as a social science Educator, then, there may be a book available to you :)!

Stay tuned.
