4.5 billion likes can’t be wrong. That is a lot of likes. You could then break down the sorts of things people are liking. It’s probably why my year 8s told me when I was doing something for ACARA, our national curriculum, they just wanted to give it a mark out of 10 and not explain but were happy to comment. They were very clear about that. Facebook likes can tell you someone read what you put up, noticed what you put up, liked what you put up, sympathised or empathised with what you shared. It’s encouragement, support, practising the art of noticing. It’s an emotional engagement with content and 4.5 billion likes tells me that Facebook knows how to engage others. I found this infographic on a Spanish site soft&apps and they discuss some of the findings which are mentioned on the original site for this graphic youthedesigner. It’s a good example of how to represent information in a visual way, but the site discusses it in more depth using text. The site moves that image forward by discussing it online and then allowing comment participation to further their interpretation of the graphic. It’s not just a picture. It’s a cyberspace sounding board.
