In 2015, Twitter introduced the “like” option for tweets, signified with a heart icon, replacing what it had previously called “favorites,” which were designated with a star.

“You might like …” starts the section of accounts to follow, generating a semi-random, inscrutably algorithmized selection of a trio of names. Are these people, or bots? Are the accounts active?

So what is it I like about these social web channels? And if I use these apps, how do I share my interest, my validation, my mark this for later reading or curation – the way I understand my use of liking and others who would like to be liked, the way they interpret my actions – all of this is undergoing tremendous transformation.


To like a Page as your Page:

  1. Click Search Facebook in the top left of Facebook and enter the name of the Page you want to like.
  2. Select the Page you want to like from the dropdown menu.
  3. Click below the Page’s cover photo.
  4. Select Like As Your Page.
  5. Select a Page and click Submit.
