How could they? What could possibly motivate them to act like that? Happens to everyone.
Being asked to take on a new role at work? What’s motivating them to ask for the switch?
Being treated poorly at the airport? What’s motivating them to do this to me?
Being offered free services that normally aren’t free? What’s their motivation?
Well, who cares about their motivation? It shouldn’t motivate your decision, reaction, or appreciation. Right?
[UPDATE] Who’s is embarrassingly spelled wrong. It should be whose. Thanks, @ERGreenberg. Sorry, Ms Ocar and Mrs Peterson. I’m leaving it.
How do you make friends on social networks? For blogs, instagram and twitter, it’s basically the same. Reblog a post. Comment on a photo. Reply to a tweet.
Give, give, give.
The logic is simple. Give someone appreciation for their work, and they’ll return the favor. Also a pretty good plan for life.
Facebook, however, lets you skip this step. Without any giving at all, you can ask for “Likes” in mass. Please like my facebook fan page. We’re acquaintances, right?
Just ask, ask, ask.
It’s like a homeless guy asking for a dollar. Yes, he’ll get some. But isn’t he more likely to get the dollar if he has already given your facebook fan page a like?
