Facebook announced recently that it will end the process known as the like gate, where users would have to like a page to enter a contest or receive more points in a game.

This will be a bummer for businesses, but I can see why Facebook would take this step

Facebook :  Social Media's version of a Wrecking Ball.

Ever since the launch of Facebook, the social powerhouse website has destroyed barriers of all kinds. 

This clipping is bang on in regards to the "LIKE" gate. My view would be the same as the majority of others that have posted their reviews: I agree 100% in destroying that feature. 

When a company sends out their promotions through any social media site, they would be looking for an honest response, not some half whit "LIKE" just for someone else to advance on a game or gain a prize. 

This article shows that the companies want to be recognized for their hard work, not just because their an ad on a mass website. The organizations want a real response, not a forced like. So I say its time to " unleash the Kracken " and let Facebook wipe away all the strings holding back those app developers and have a less cluttered website. 

We want real feedback, not automated feedback.

 

Where are all the real people? If you find one, please share with us your thoughts

Russell Iles's insight:

As a bloke that enjoys a good Aussie red or apple cider, boating is not the time or place to enjoy it.

Boat safety does not allow for idiots that think no one will book'em out at sea.

When you disregard your own safety and that of others, you desrve to be arrested and fined and with a stronger deterent if warranted.

By placing your self interest above that of others, you should not have a boat let alone a licence.

Love to se all licensed boaties breathe tested at the boat ramps.
