When I found out about likealittle.com last week (Biola has its own site), I wasn’t the least bit surprised that it was the Next Big Social Media Thing to hit college campuses. The site, self-described as “a flirting-facilitator platform (or FFP, for advanced users)” basically allows college students to kill time in class by posting flirtatious notes to the person they’ve got their eye on across the room.
Billed as a “dangerously exciting” anonymous flirting experience” (notice the bolded anonymous), likealittle is all about objectifying the object of your affection: “Female, Brunette. You are probably the most beautiful girl on this campus. Your hair is like auburn silk, and your eyes are literally breathtaking—fathomless, ever-moving, always-sparkling pools of green and brown.”
