Get Dumped? I’m Likin’ It!

So, we all know how much college students like us are absolutely tripping over themselves with how much they love the new Facebook format. All the cool new things you can do! Like not be able to read what’s going on! And miss your friends’ birthdays because they changed the position on the page! Forget the fact that 1.2 million people hate it. It’s the time for hope and change, baby!

Well, maybe Facebook wanted to give its users something to like, for once, so they slapped the “like” option on just about everything that comes through your news feed. New video? You can “like” it. Your friend has 5 favorite hipster albums? I “like” it. My roommate even just pointed out to me today that if one of your friends gets dumped – hell, you can like it!
