what popular people liked.Some do it to reinforce in everyone’s minds that the he/she is, indeed, friends with the poster of the status.*Some do it to make sure everyone knows that he/she was a part of the inside joke in the status.*Some do it to create the illusion that he/she was a part of the inside joke in the status.**You can interchange ‘status’ and ‘picture’.
One, Two, and Three alllll liked Four’s status, so I did too.
Five’s status was nothing special, but I liked it because I wanted to make sure everyone knows I know her and I’m tight with her.
Six made her status about all the drinks we had, but she didn’t name names, so I made sure everyone knows I was the one she had drinks with (in case anyone is unsure I drink) by liking it.
One of Seven’s statuses was about her and Eight drinking, and even though I wasn’t there, I had to make sure everyone knows I do like to drink (in case anyone doesn’t know I’m hardcore) so I liked it.
