Considering the number of members who log in each day (about 25) there is an astounding lack of interest in "liking" contributions that are being made by the few. For example, yellowstone2014 offers something current almost daily and hasn't been getting more than 2-4 likes, a few with five or six (including jrchico). One should show an appreciation for another's effort if to at least acknowledge that you've viewed his/her posts. Do members log in just to check the "paticipated" list and then log out?
Also, contributing to the conversation with some positive input, regardless how insignificant one may think his/her comment might be, would stimulate some responses and fresh interaction ( I would hope). Don't give that lame old excuse that "Jackie isn't doing enough" as some do. Her video, just posted yesterday has received a dismal response here. There were 71 enthusiastic comments on YouTube very soon after (presently 137). Those who do the posting aren't giving excuses. Come on, guys. Show your support.
I don't know about others, but when I read a post, I decide rapidly whether I should like it. It is based upon gut feelings and could be different if I read it a few hours later. As to the "Jackie removing Rachel's upper-lip hair" video, it just didn't interest me. Should that really interest a 70-year old man? I do think that it is good that Jackie is trying to post human-interest videos, and I liked the first, at least I think that I did. Undoubtedly, this video was intended for another audience -- they can like it.
You certainly are not one of those to whom I speak. You are very consistent in liking what you read.
Jackie's video deserves more recognition than to be dismissed just because one may be of the older generation, particularly when some here have complained that she doesn't do enough social media. Should she have produced something especially appealing to us to warrant our approval? I'm over 70 and appreciate the effort she made to entertain her fans. The least one can do is give it a "like". I'm certain not all comments on YouTube were posted by young girls. Maybe she should have done a demonstration of how to pull an old fart's bushy mustache to get some responses here.
