I wrote the Blog below nearly a year ago after we had gotten our cat, Dash, from the Cat Cottage in Freeland. He had been there for a year, and he made it clear to us very quickly, that we were his peeps. Here’s what I wrote:
I am mystified by Facebook. I admit to not always knowing or understanding what draws attention, especially when you’re trying to figure out what you can show in social media that will result in responses.
I often see that what my daughter made for dinner draws 20 or 30 “likes,” yet when I post incredibly cute pictures of my grandchildren or something else I find especially interesting, maybe I’ll get 10 or 15 “likes” (although some of my grandkid and daughter photos have occasionally gotten more).
There has been a recent exception to my past experiences. A little over a week ago, Rich and I got a three-year old kitty from the WAIF Cat Cottage in Freeland….and I posted a photo. I had nearly 40 “likes” and an amazing number of comments.
Interestingly, the responses for Dash on Facebook have remained the same. I posted a photo of him with a toy mouse, and then later a picture of him on my desk as my office cat…..and about 30 people commented each time. Sadly, my adorable grandkids usually get less than 20 likes.
I am not sure what this all means except people really love seeing pictures of cute animals., even more than cute kids.
