Likes for likes

Likes for likes. Comments for comments. Visit my blog and I will visit yours. Be my friend and I will be nice to you.

Superficial culture. Very egocentric. Very false. Very much used among people sharing their photos on social media sites. Instant benchmark. Instant likes. Untrue. No freedom.Chained by judgments of others.

There is a lack of deep interest.

A formula for popular image maker on social media:

Be social. Like a lot. Talk a lot. Give feedback. Say nice things about photos of your social media pals. Soon people will like you and they will be nice to you too.

Talking about Flickr, Facebook, 500px, Instagram, Tumblr..... Wordpress. Even Wordpress blogs are infected by social media disease. As long as liking, sharing and following functions are present there it is same principle as any other social media site.

Second formula for making popular image:

Make a photo that you think will be in taste of other people. So if you friends like landscapes, than you will be successful with showing landscape photos. If you friends like this, than give it to them and they will praise you.

So. I would not recommend anybody to try to be popular. You will loose a big part of yourself.

Success of photo can't be measured on social sites.

    Well said, Petros! One has to shoot what inspires themselves not others.
