"I want to live and raise my sons in a world where within the the realm of social media or any media platform it becomes a form of expression not validation. As a creative the desire to express is part of who I am and what I do - not to be confused with the desire to impress. So with that, I am happy to see the end of the like count and if someone wants to express their thoughts through a comment I'd welcome it because at least it would be somewhat conscious and considered. Even for those keyboard warriors out there - it's a form of communication, interaction and an exercise of free speech. Albeit good or bad."
