I Like It on the Facebook Campaign

Readers Don't Like the "I Like It on the . . ." Facebook Campaign

Most readers felt that the "I like it on the couch," "I like it on the desk" Facebook status updates did nothing to bring awareness to breast cancer. Here's what they had to say:

 

  • I got so annoyed with it this year — last year it at least made a semi-kind of sense — but purses? So I ended up making a donation to the national Cancer Association, and updated with that, and a link to the site in my profile instead. It's one way of making awareness, and what can be done to assist. —
  • Ahh, but everyone is talking about it! Therefore, it raises awareness. People get angry "purses have nothing to do with breast cancer!" And yet your mind is being reminded again . . . "oh breast cancer . . . breast exam . . . when was the last time I saw a doctor?" Obviously it isn't going to work for every person, but it's a way to get the message out in a non-scary way. —
  • What does where you place your purse (and trying to sound sexy and coy about it) have to do with breast cancer? OR ANYTHING? Ridiculous. —

  • I agree with everyone before me. Promoting breast cancer awareness is one thing, but this is not a good way to do it. It makes me want to stay away from facebook for a while, because I honestly find these "I like it . . . " statuses very annoying. —
  • What does my purse have to do with breast cancer? —
  • I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks this is stupid. —
  • It's interesting how this has been making headlines this week when I've had messages in my inbox probably every 6 months or so since I joined facebook in 2007, about women doing this in their status . . . which I have never done. —
