Facebook To Replace 'Like' With Six Emoji - Geeks are Sexy Technology NewsGeeks are Sexy Technology News. In case you missed the memo, Facebook friends are not intended to be real friends. What you say on Facebook bears a grim resemblance to what you might say on a public poster downtown in a small town. The real truth of our lives contains embarrassing, hurtful, and sometimes painful truths that are no one's business but our own. We want our acquaintances to commiserate in our pain (I experienced this recently with my surgery), and we want to share our good times and our triumphs. However, we don't want to be completely transparent, do we? So, adding a bunch of emojis to the Like button is just a temptation to say too much. I look the other way when my Facebook friends espouse political beliefs that I find offensive, in the same way that I tolerate the differences of family and friends. We have more in common than not. However, there should be a limit in Facebook sharing. There should be some reticence in our laying out of our lives, good and bad. Facebook, and the Thanksgiving table, are not places to argue politics, or religion, or other points of view on which we will never agree. Facebook is a place to share our humanity; but, with a tall fence between us. Facebook on.
