If you are a college student, there’s a high chance that you bring at least one of these three devices to class with you: a laptop, a smartphone or a tablet.

This is where “Liking” your own posts comes into play.

So the next time you see one of your friends “Like” their own post, they probably aren’t giving themselves a pat on the back. Instead, they’re giving you an opportunity to check out a post that might never make it into your news feed. I recommend that you “Like” your own posts as well!
