Do you beg for likes and comments?

I see there is a trend among my Yahoo! messenger list.Every now and again I will be requested to like and/or comment(good things) on someone's Facebook page.This is not the first time I experienced it.It became popular when Hi5 was the most popular social site in my country. I simply can't understand this.If you have a photo,why would you want to make someone like and comment it?I think,by doing so,you will only be surrounded by false friends. What's your opinion of like and comment beggars?

No way would I beg for likes and comments on my photos. But if there were likes and comments on my photos, what I usually thought is that my friends and those who aren't my "real life" friends found my photo interesting and may be good or bad, which is why they can't help but to post a comment or like it. But I do think you are also referring to those person who joins some contest where they need to have the highest number of likes and comments. And I do think this is the reason why they sent out messages to all people on their friend's list to ask for it. If they are someone I know, I usually do it otherwise nope I don't.

I don't beg for people to like or comment on "my" photos, but there are times when I've liked/shared from some one else's, because I do like them. If they like/comment on a photo of mine it's because they like it and if they don't they won't.

Hi Stoutjodee, Just like you, I also like or share something, an update or a photo with quotes that has been shared by others on my list... that's because I found it interesting...

I not like write comments on photos in facebook but I like only comment on mylot in my own discussions. Why persons think comment is must in their photos or on activity.

So very true , it is like opening your life to the public , or to some extent you are like bragging to the public as to your status in life now. Why not make it to private or could be to customize it so only few selected friends can see it.

well I also encounters allot of friends sending me message to like their photos or other stuff, but it also depends on the subject (like photo contest) well its okey but when they want to like a personal photo like profile picture well hmmm I think of it its nonsense.. I do allot of likes on facebook and I want to like what I like.

Hmm.. I never thought of it like that. Me personally, I don't beg for likes/comments. You either like it or comment or you don't. It makes me no difference, but then again I'm really not the type of person who craves attention. I've always been the quiet one standing away from the crowd, whereas some people live for being seen all the time. People who do beg for them seem kind of pathetic if you ask me. They apparently want to be the center of attention and want everyone to see what they've posted. I don't understand myself lol so you're not alone.

I never beg for anything, it's just not me. And speaking of false friends. I'm sure many people have those 'False Friends' on Facebook one way or another. I mean, all these people with 800+ friends on Facebook. I don't think they even know these many. Probably met one time and was like "add me on fb" and that's where their conversation ends. Their relationship is based on likes and shallow comments. I guess that's the downside of Facebook. :\

never, ever, in my Facebook life i asked anyone to "Like" whatever i post, be it either photos or links or comments. actually and honestly speaking, i do not expect at least one person will push the button when i post something. but i am sure, if your post seems to be interesting or has QUALITY or SENSE, most likely you are going to see Likes on them. asking for Likes is pathetic, i believe.

i agree with you ,this is very trend on facebook, most of the people on facebook ,when upload anything like picture or videos , beg for the comments and likes and this is very irritating when they messaged me and telling to like their contents. they do not understand that if that is good then surely i like it otherwise why should i like it. well i totally against of it and i never beg for like and comments on facebook. i think if your content is good then people sure like that.

i too get many requests, but i dont understand whats the need for it, i never do it myself, in fact i never post anything on face book and all, so no question of asking , but i really wonder why people ask like that.

Seriously i don't understand why many people like that. I have many pictures with many comments but to be honest i just read only and don't care much about it. There is few or a lot of comments, it doesnt matter...

This is actually one of my pet peeves. I mean I know my own tastes and I'm sure as heck that I know if I like something or not. I dont like being told to like something if I don't really feel like it. If I really like it, then there's no need to prod me to do so.

Luckily I never got any such request from my friends on social networking sites. Some of my friends post the links of their blogs or Facebook page on my Facebook wall, but they never requested for likes or comments. Getting too many likes and positive comments has become a mark of popularity or status on Facebook nowadays.

Well, actually I have encountered a lot of those messages and I am also guilty of asking from people , too. But that is mainly because I have on online business in Facebook and I want to widen my online visibility.
