I’ve attached a link to one of my favorite scenes from the 2015 Vacation movie ( Vacation 2015 scene: Why you didn’t click like. YouTube Clip ) – those of you who know me know I love to laugh and my taste in movies is somewhat eclectic. When I first watched Vacation, I got a lot of side-eye during this scene.
For those of you who don’t have time to watch the 30 second link, Nancy Peterson is telling Debbie Griswold about her trip to Paris. She pulls out her phone and shares pictures. Debbie says she’s seen them on Instagram. At this point, Nancy gets a little passive aggressive, pointing out that she didn’t know Debbie saw them because she never clicked “like”. All of Nancy’s other friends clicked “like”.
Why would Debbie Griswold look at her pictures and not click “like”? It’s common courtesy. It takes less than one second to click and let someone know you were there.
Who is in charge of social media etiquette? I think this needs to be a thing.
Sure, I’m trying to build a professional presence on-line. I can pretend my connection to Nancy is because of my desire to build a following. It’s not. I saw the movie before starting my blog and immediately related to Nancy Peterson. I need the attention.
I have a problem.
Or a calling. Maybe I’m destined to write a book on social media etiquette?
Are there any other people out there with my “problem”?
