• Why? Exactly what good comes from “liking” someone/something on Facebook?

    It’s a serious question. I see this type of begging for “likes” all the time, and I really don’t know why.

  • “Liking” the site means that:

    1) Some of your Facebook friends will see that you like the site, and might give it a try;

    2) Overlawyered posts will show up in your Facebook feed. If you like or share some of those items, again, word will spread to others who might become readers. For many sites, a majority of readership comes from Facebook feeds and shares. In our case it’s only 1 percent, which leaves a lot of room for growth.
