Exclamation Like this status so I can get money!
So I have seen people on Facebook who will post a picture of a kid with cancer, or some terrible tragedy, and then type in the description "Like this so we can save her." or "Like this if you care, keep scrolling if you don't." I find this practice disgusting and exploitative. One example I can give is that Kylo Cho posted a picture of 911/Iraq veterans who dies (the one in the plane and the flags over the coffins. And Kylo wrote in the description "Like if you care, keep scrolling if you don't." And then proceeded to type in the comments "Share this if you respect them." Brandon Cyrus is also extremely guilty of this practice. I think it is exploitative, disrespectful, insulting, greedy, and over all just down right offensive. These people are using a tragic event or a child with some kind of disease to gain likes and even money through advertisements.

What do you think though? Is this practice offensive to people, or is it OK?

Facebook? Really? Can a Facebook Nazi say a few things here? Who gives a fuck what anyone is writing on Facebook and who gives a fuck who likes what on Facebook?

These were not the actual questions, you can classify this as a rhetorical questions.

It seriously pisses me off. Im sick of seeing someone liking one of those posts posted by some attention seeker trying to get likes.

I'm considering unfriending the people that click like on them, its getting that bad.

Behold the power of the force!

I see these type pics saying: like this and facebook will pay for this child's operation.

That's just idiotic, facebook pays for shit. I think it's a way for people to get their FB page to raise in google because some of these posts get thousands of likes.

It's an indirect way to push your website, list it on facebook and get thousands of likes. It's disgusting.

Every day minions die.
The WTF-agency estimated that 5000 minions per hour are dieng.
They have to fight other people's wars!!!!
They are selfless followers and people keep exploiting them for their will to die in fights of other people.
Stop the madness!!
If you hate that minions have to die constantly, help them by liking this post!
Have a heart, show feelings, be human!

I was just bemoaning the fact earlier this evening that I named my dog Snuffy instead of Minion. That would have been so fucking cool to tell people I have my own minion!
