In today’s modern society, it seems like everyone is on Facebook. Let’s be honest, you kind of have to be just to keep in touch with friends you might not see on a regular basis. But in this Facebook world, you can easily obsess over the number of likes, comments, or shares due to the constant need to feel validated. Although, I could be speaking solely from my own experience.
Sometimes, when I post what I think is a witty status on Facebook but get no response from anyone, I have a mild, internal freak out. “It’s been 15 minutes. Why isn’t anyone liking or commenting on my post? Was it funny in my head but lame in real life? Should I delete the post and start over? I need validation!! Oh, look… Matt just liked my post. Crisis averted.” That’s normal, right?
Well, since I think everyone loves getting “likes” and Valentine’s Day is coming up, why not combine the two?
You probably remember I made Facebook “like” cookies before to promote my Facebook page. I thought this design would also work well as a modern take on this upcoming holiday. Doesn’t everyone deserve to feel liked on Valentine’s Day? Now, by way of cookies, they can be.
I took the same design as before but changed the blue scheme into a red and pink one. I also added a heart cufflink to really get the point across.
For those feeling a little more flirty, I expanded on the Facebook theme and made “poke” cookies. (TRIVIA: You know the sound effect when you poke someone on Facebook? That voice behind the “poke” soundbite is none other than Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg).
I know both these designs are a little outdated since Facebook has updated these icons with a new look, but I still prefer this old-school style. I think most people can still relate to these versions.
Usually, I’m not one to celebrate Valentine’s Day; it’s just not my thing (nevermind the fact that I’m single). However, lately I’m feeling more creative and inspired. I have a few more Valentine cookies ideas I hope to share in the coming weeks so stick around.
