What Turkey Decides What Bubble the Rest of the Turkeys are Going to Read?
Every so often--fairly often, in fact--one of my older, obscure posts on Bubblews will suddenly have a surge in likes. Typically, it's one that is not listed in my Top 100 or on my profile page, so the only way for someone other than me (I have all my URLs in a list) to find them is to Google it, find the link buried deep (as in 6 months deep) on my Old Roads Once Traveled Facebook page, run across the link on another post related to it, or happen on it by chance.
None of these posts have been a hot evergreen topic that a lot of people would search for. In fact, most of them are personal posts, and it's unlikely that they would contain many popular keywords. Frequently they turn out to be multiple photo posts that were wrecked by the site changeover. They're not the type of posts that someone would share and tell all their friends what an outstandingly presented piece of art they are (even though I would like to think they used to be).
So it makes me wonder: What person in the group (and it's obviously a group of some kind) decided that this post is a must read, and how did they find it?
Did someone Google "Birdzilla attacks OldRoadsOnceTraveled"?
The current popular post is "More Photos From the Birdzilla Attack" from back in April. It actually is on my Top 100 list, but I don't know if it was there a couple of weeks ago, or if the rash of recent likes has pushed it there.
Anyone who has been a member more than three months is going to be painfully aware that any title beginning with "More Photos" is NOT going to have more photos . This post, in fact, has none. Zero. Zip. Nada. Nothing but gray where a really interesting picture--one of several--used to be.
It does, at least, have all it's text, being written after optional text boxes were disabled. Not all of the recently popular oldies have exactly been all there.
Did someone hack my list of damaged posts?
In all fairness, Bubblews didn't hack off this turkey's head, as they are prone to do in photos of people. I did. You try taking a picture of a bird that big from inches away when you're expecting it to come through the car window any second.
Many of the members who do this have done it so often I recognize their names in my notifications. I always ignore them, and yet they keep liking. If they were truly interested in what I had to say, they'd be leaving comments, or at least keeping up with my nice, easy to find recent posts. Clearly they are looking for return likes, but you'd think some of them would have figured out by now that my name never shows up in their notifications. So why do they keep wasting their time?
You'd think whoever is in charge of the list would start picking posts that will net them some return on their investment of time. And yet, they keep picking turkeys .
Someone clearly got their beak crossed.
