Like 4 Real Value
By exchanghibition on 6:31 pm
What are our most important values? Financial values? Or is it something else? Could money ever express our true appreciation of social, moral, or spiritual values as well? Those values can’t be easily quantified or expressed with a click of a button. Even though nowadays it seems everything is just a click away.
Showing gratitude and appreciation has always been an essential part of our human interactions. Since we have allowed social media to hijack and monetize the Like, and our monetary transactions have become increasingly anonymous though it seems to have become more difficult to express those feelings.
We ask stores to gift-wrap the stuff we buy, but don’t really seem to have a way to gift-wrap the money we give in return.
Until now, because now there’s the Like banknote - a tangible token of appreciation which we can add to our payments in order to show our real Like for other people and initiatives.
Because money can not only be used to acquire more material possessions, but can also enable those people and initiatives we Like to keep doing what they Like.
When was the last time you said “Thank You” when someone Liked you on Facebook? Wouldn’t it be great if we could gift-wrap our Likes on social media as well to indicate that we did not just click a button, but truly Liked someone or something? Couldn’t we add value not only to our money, but to our Likes as well?
Perhaps in this way we can begin giving Likes to those we Like 4 Real rather than collecting Likes, as if we collect stamps, in order to impress others.
