Tyranny Of The “Like” Button

posted on April 21st 2012 in Observations & Tech Newz with 0 Comments

Here’s a great analogy from SmashingMag running comic, The FLEATY: The Geek Bug.

The cartoons are dedicated to design and Web development, but also have a comic twist about everything happening around the Web as well as give you some insights behind the curtains of Smashing Magazine.

This cartoon is referring to the article The Insidious Evils of ‘Like’ Culture in which the “Like” culture in our society is criticized. The article discusses how in our age of online view counts and retweets, conformity is unfortunately becoming the rule.


Smashing Cartoons is a regular section on Smashing Magazine. Every Friday we publish a new cartoon created by Ricardo Gimenes, the creative mind of Behind the Websites.
