I Like Liker

I was a late adopter to Facebook, and as much as I like Facebook, I don’t like Mark Zuckerberg and his and Facebook’s political persuasions.

I had been waiting for something similar to come along, and I’m willing to give Liker a try as an early adopter.

I have been using Liker since June 10. I spent the first 24 hours exploring and made a couple of posts and comments. After 5 days, I find myself going to Liker before going to Facebook. Then, after I visit Facebook, I find myself going back to Liker. I’m pretty sure that means that I like Liker.

Come join me and those of us already at Liker!

    So far for me, the site is too juvenile. Perhaps is will mature some day, but just goes to show how difficult it is to find sites where people actually talk about things that matter.

    I had a Facebook account because ‘that’s what authors do’, but I never liked it, so when the Cambridge Analytica scandal blew up, deleting my account was a no brainer.
    It would be nice to think that FB was finally going the way of MySpace and others before it. I just wonder whether Liker is any better in terms of user privacy/security?
    The trouble with free social media sites is that they have to get their money from somewhere. If not directly from subscriptions or advertising then indirectly by data mining their own customer’s data and selling that to advertising networks.
    Do you know what Liker’s financial model is?

      Liker is owned by Omar Rivero, who makes over $100,000 a month from his ownership of Occupy Democrats. So he has the money to do something. My only concern at this point is that those who get rich usually want to be even richer. Will that happen to Rivero? I don’t know.

        Sorry, those names don’t mean anything to me, but I like the idea of a new player giving the existing players a run for their money.
        Sadly it seems that even if we take every precaution, the algorithms are now so sophisticated that they can shadow profile us – just on the basis of what our friends write about us. 😦

          As my wise old grandmother told me in 1966: “If you’re going to us modern technology like smart phones and the Internet, say goodbye to your privacy.” — Obviously not really, but I can hear her saying it 40 years later.

            In a practical sense, you’re right. It’s what’s happened and likely to keep on happening. But just because pickpockets are everywhere doesn’t mean that stealing your watch is /right/. 😦

                Ugh…seriously? Russel! You have at least one bank account, I assume. You have an identity. You have a contact list of people who also have lives. It’s precisely people who aren’t pickpockets who make the best targets.

                Sorry, but this issue is close to my heart. Not because I have anything to hide either, but because I hate thieves of any description. 😦

                  I had my identity stolen in 2003. I take precautions, like not answering all those About Me questionnaires on Facebook. I change passwords often, and it would take a Honeywell quantum supercomputer to guess them. I can only do so much, which is why all the racism and hatred still exists. As my wise old grandmother told me in 1966: “Look out for yourself first.” Well, I do. After that, I try to educate others, but there are way too many in the world who don’t want to learn. I can’t help them, and to be honest, I quit trying when Twitler was elected president.
