Absence of Like


The Like button, in actuality, provides us with a binary choice: one may click the button, or one may leave the button unlicked.
The choice is not between Like and Dislike but rather between Like and Absence of Like, the latter being a catch-all category of non-affiliation encompassing not only Dislike but also Not Sure and No Opinion and Don’t Care and Ambivalent and Can’t Be Bothered and Not in the Mood to Deal with This at the Moment and I Hate Facebook — the whole panoply, in other words, of states of non-affiliation with particular things or beings. --| ROUGH TYPE

Your Say

The smartest choice is not having a facebook account in the first place.
You can also install add-ons to your browswer to make all the like/link/and share buttons disappear.
