Do You Like Your Pictures?

Hey DDs!

So there's this guy I know from a while ago. He's a VERY good-looking brother. In fact, I may have had a teeny tiny crush on him some kind time like this. Anyways, this fine brother was a very smart individual (well, doctors are smart, right?) and very confident in himself. Maybe confident to the point of arrogance. He's one of the few guys (if not the only guy) I know who likes his own photos on Facebook.

I know other people who do the same thing. They put up a picture on Facebook or Instagram and then proceed to "like" the photo. It's not as if there's anything legally or morally wrong with that, but isn't it kinda weird? Like, since you're posting the photo, doesn't that already mean that you like it? Isn't that why you posted it? If you don't like the picture, then why would you put it up online? So posting it means that you think the picture is nice... so why go a step further and "like" the photo?


If you know the answer please help me out, because it baffles me every time I see another instance.

    1. LOL, but why? Are you afraid someone else won't like them? Or you just feel like you're the master-liker of your own pictures?

  3. I dont think it makes sense to 'like' your pwn pictures. Almost same as tooting your whistle

    1. I wouldn't say it's necessarily tooting, but... I just still don't get it.

      UNLESS the picture or status is just like magnificently stupendously awesome!!! Enh heh, then I can like my picture.

  10. I don't necessarily like all my pictures on Instagram but I don't see anything wrong with people doing so. I think putting the picture up says "this picture is cute. I like it, I'm gonna share it". Then liking it after you post it says "I really like this picture". It shows to me that you are your biggest fan and it would matter not to you if people liked the picture or not. As it should.

    But, that's just me.

  11. I think the people that like their own pictures on social media do so
    1. To increase the number of likes on the pictures
    2. To show people that they love them selves enough
    Personally to me, it shows insecurity and I don't think that's a good look.

    1. I don't personally think they're insecure; I just feel confused.

  12. Ok, maybe another reason for liking 'self-posted' own pictures on Facebook is to 'remind' people to like, comment and all? Since friends would get the notification after the first notice.

    1. Hehe @ reminder. But a Facebook notification would say something like "SoandSo liked their OWN picture." Ah well, different strokes...
