I Like It on Facebook Campaign

Viral on Facebook: I Like It on the Couch, I Like It on the Desk

I like it next to my kitchen stove. There's something about the smell of cooking that . . . nope, it's not what you think. I, like many others, was actually referring to my purse. Yesterday, my friend Amy posted an "I like it on top of my law books" Facebook status update, which totally took me by surprise. I was seeing her in a whole new light until I saw a couple of other people posting "I like it on . . . " updates. Turns out, it's actually a Facebook campaign that was started for the purpose of promoting breast cancer awareness. You might be familiar with the last viral breast cancer awareness meme which had plenty of women posting about the color of their bra. What about you — where do you like to leave your purse?

How do you raise awareness by not saying what you're talking about at all? I've always been skeptical about raising awareness for diseases like that anyway. Everybody has heard of this. Now go spend the money on research and not on raising awareness campaigns!

What the heck? How does where you put your purse have anything to do with cancer? I think all the breast cancer awareness stuff is a little over the top anyway. The way they tell it, people who have breast cancer are victims, but if you get lung cancer, people act like it's your own fault or something. Cancer is cancer; I think it sucks that breast cancer gets more attention than other more fatal types.

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.

That's great, komler ! If people want to help with various causes, then I don't understand why they don't do something - donate, volunteer, etc.

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.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks this is stupid.

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.

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.

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.
