If you read something happy or good on Facebook, do you click the Like button? I do. How about when you read something tragic, sad or unfortunate? Do you click the Like button too? I don't, and my friends don't either. We find it offensive and thoughtless, as if you were a robot that is designed to click Like on whatever post it reads. But apparently, some (or maybe even a lot) of people do so.
The wife of a very close friend of mine posted in Facebook that she had a miscarriage yesterday, and to my shock, three of her "friends" liked it. My boyfriend and I confronted them, implying that it was insulting to like a post about a miscarriage. Plus it contradicted their intention of condoling with him and his wife. We were expecting them to at least click Unlike, but no:
According to Merriam-Webster, to "like" means to feel attraction toward or take pleasure in. So, did this person "take pleasure in" the miscarriage?
