I know you can do it - 'LIKE' your own status, comments and pictures on facebook. But don't you find it a bit irritating..!! It can still make sense when a person likes his/her own photo... maybe someone else took it.. or something else... but liking your status and comment..!!! That gets on my nerves...!!! Is it just me??

This is very annoying. I have often wondered the purpose behind it. If you made the post its clearly understand u like what u wrote or you wouldn't have wrote it..lol I wish they would really add a dislike button..;)

Hi Mary, That is exactly what I think... Unless you like what you posted why would you post it..!!! Just don't understand the logic...

Hi anand, Yeah, I am back again after another long break. Don't know how long I am gonna be here though. Keeping my fingers crossed and hope to carry on. If you keep liking your own stuff, I can't really promise anything. But the good news is, you are not very active there.

Won't make any promises as I am not sure I will be able to keep it. But let's see...

I am not on Facebook, so I can't really say from personal experience, but it still sounds weird to me. I would think that if the person posted a status, picture or comment, then they would like it or they would not have posted it. Then again, if the comment or status is something like "I am having a terrible day, and everything seems to be going wrong" I doubt that they would really like that. It would be even weirder if they did "like" that comment. Is there a "dislike" feature for when things are really going badly?

Hi purple, Actually, I have this particular friend who does exactly that. He likes whatever he posts. If he posts something like "Running high fever. I am sick".. he likes even that..!!! You know, one of my other friends have put it beautifully. He says liking your own status and comments is like "giving yourself a high-five". Sadly, there is no dislike button, which I think they should add. I hope they do it someday...

LOL! I think that is definitely weird. If I saw someone post a comment like that I would probably say something jokingly sarcastic to him like "Do you really like being sick or is that just the fever talking?" and see what he said about it. I wonder if this sort of person is rather insecure, so they are looking for reassurance, even if they have to give it to themselves.

I am not sure why he does it. I thought surely he is not doing it to amuse himself. He does this more out of a habit. But now I am thinking maybe you are right. He does seem to like the idea that his name is there in the likes. Don't understand how that helps..!!!

Isn't it enough to just put the status up? Why does a person have to like it too? I guess I am confused. Why does it get on your nerves? I could care less what they do on Facebook. I must have a really tame bunch in my friend's list cause we never have problems. Strangest think I have heard today!

Hi celtic, You are asking the same question I ask to myself while thinking why he does that. I could find no reason except for the fact that he really likes his posts. That is the literal deduction I can draw from his activity. Weird..!!!

Liking your own status on facebook is like high fiving yourself though i dont like my own status that's what people consider it as.I understand people who like their own status.maybe because they just really like the status.Just ignore it and move on i guess

Hi veedee, Can't really ignore it, I don't know why. I now I don't have any other choice but to let it go and move on. Still it irritates me.

It gets on my nerves when someone goes around and presses they like this and they like that every time someone posts something. They must love to puch the button.

Hi Steph, I am happy to know that I am not the only person who thinks this weird and that there are others who feel the same way. Thank you for the response.

Yes I find it very silly and sort of awkward when people like their own status. I wonder why they do this and surely they must know that others can see they liked it too. I find it very silly my friend. lol
