This is so awesome! Excited for more!
Alexis lip syncing.. this time.. not for her life. :-) I love the way she sparkles when she performs.. her eyes are so full of life!
How many times have you seen someone comment; “Where is the dislike button?” when referring to a post a friend has made on facebook? Chances are, if you’re an active facebook user, you’ve seen this a multitude of times.
There are appropriate times for this button to exist. Perhaps when someone says their animal is sick or that they were in a car accident. Of course, the list of appropriate reasons for “needing” the dislike button goes on and on and on.
So, why isn’t there one? It’s rather simple. As a society, we cannot be trusted with a dislike button. Facebook was designed and created to be a community where friends reconnect. It’s supposed to be a happy place.
Youtube has a like and dislike button. And every time that 40,000 people like something and 87 people don’t, the 87 people who don’t have something negative to say and the 40,000 who do make fun of the 87 people who don’t.
So, facebook keeps it simple. If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.
But.. but… but.. what if I just want to dislike that my friends grandmother is in the hospital? Well.. it’s rather simple. Click on the comment box and tell your friend you’re sorry for what they’re going through. Better yet, send them a private email or a phone call to be there for them. Our society is so reliant on technology to communicate feelings that emotions and feelings are becoming more and more extinct.
Think about it. You make a post “I am getting married!!” 56 people “like” your post and 4 people write a comment of congrats and how happy they are for you. Do you remember the 56 names that liked your post? Most often.. no. You remember the people that took an extra moment to actually say something….
Love Carmen too! Hope I get to photograph her also one day soon!
Me with Alexis Mateo and Yara Sofia right after their performances. :-)
