I’m always dismayed when I see a headline like this. And I always click-through to read the article, because I want to know what latest statistic Nevada has achieved top position in.
But the intriguing thing is – why do people ‘Like’ this? What the heck does this have to do with Facebook Likes?
Do they Like the fact that Nevada is in such a mess?
Or do they Like stories that are ‘well’ written?
Or do they get a perk from the TV station if they Like a story?
Or do they just go and Like random stuff?
Explain it to me. I’m just not getting it.
I don’t know. I read the story and I think it must have been a really slow news day. Because that MAJOR statistic was met with a really mediocre story. My apologies to the journalist, but really, the source for ways to cut back on your basic wage-earner’s budget was really lame.
I expected a bit more insight on the report from the CFED. Instead it was a bunch of rather pedestrian ideas (and worse, quotes from man-on-the-street interviews) on how to cut back on what all of us have already cut back on.
And have your bank help you do a budget? Okay.
Then we have folks giving this story a Facebook Like. In the time I did the little screen grab and went back to the article, it jumped to 17 likes. In just a couple minutes.
And by the way, here is better info on the CFED stats.
