One of iSensei’s followers who’s new to SocNet (or Social Networking, as the layman calls it) was curious about the difference between the “LIKE” and “SHARE” buttons that are so all over the place these days. Allow me to clarify…
When you click on the LIKE button, it just adds that ‘vote’ into an aggregate “Thumbs Up” sort of rating, displaying the number people who clicked on it. It goes no further per se, except as a measurement of relative success for the article/posting or site itself.
SHARE is where you send a URL/link to someone because you want them to check that site/page out. They click on the link received via email or one of many SocNet sites (like Twitter, Facebook, etc) and are instantly transported to the source of the link. Sharing IS caring after all.
And that makes this a good time to remind all those who walk with iSensei on our Journey to Awareness that each of YOU should be clickety-clacking those LIKE and SHARE buttons RIGHT HERE! Spread the Word!!
