This Is What I Do For You!
If I follow you, I 'like' your post every time (even if I don't like it) hahahaha. I do this because I'm committed to following you, supporting you, and I appreciate that you are taking time to communicate within the community.
If I follow you, I always begin to read your post and stay with it as long as it is relevant to my journey at the moment of reading. I also continue reading if it is entertaining or inspirational. There are so many posts and at the very least, I begin to read each one of those I follow. And I 'like' them, even if I don't (see paragraph 1).
I think 'liking' is good for you and it appears to be good for me in rankings. I assure you though, I do it because I am committed to you, and it feels good to be 'liked' and to 'like' back. If you LIKE this, please 'like' this. I will like your like back!
