There’s Power in a “Like”

If you thought Facebook was good, harmless, fun, think again. I read this story recently on Mashable.com: Man Assaults Wife for Not “Liking” His Facebook Update (http://mashable.com/2011/10/09/man-assaults-wife-facebook/).

Apparently you should think twice about liking, or not liking, someone’s posts. Consider this your warning.

It is interesting though, the amount of validation we can get and give through social media. There’s power in a good comment, a retweet, or a simple “like.” We probably SHOULD think twice about how we use these tools to encourage. It could make the difference.
