1. It is interesting to think that people think that people think of likes as currency. I think people think of likes as currency because the more money you have the more people in this generation think highly of you. It is the same thing with likes on any social media outlet. The more likes you get on a certain post, the more you are considered popular and well liked.
2. I think that it is smart for companies to use social media as a way to promote their products. Since people are able to skip through any commercial when watching tv, the only way for companies to get their message across is through social media. Everyone uses social media so the audience for the product is much larger online.
