As a social media superwoman, chances are you will meet two kinds of men during your dating phase: “social media dads” and “social media kings”.
Unlike “social media kings” whose presence on these platforms matters a lot, “social media dads” will rarely post you or like your posts.
They like keeping their life low-key and leaving far too little to the public eye.
This will leave you wondering if you are in the right relationship or if he purposely does not like other people knowing about his relationship with you.
While his behavior may affect you significantly and take a toll on your social media confidence, you need to understand his reasons for not liking your posts.
That said, here are the main reasons he doesn’t like your social media posts and how to handle them.
Why He Doesn’t Like Your Social Media Posts
First, everyone has their opinions when it comes to how much they should reveal or react to anyone’s social media posts.
Whether he is your boyfriend, crush, or any man you like, his decision to react to your posts narrows down to various factors such as how he sees you outside the platform, what he thinks about social media, and his overall willingness to like, comment, or share your posts.
Generally, a man may not like your posts for the following reasons:
1. A decrease in the initial excitement
Let’s face it, maybe you met on Facebook or Instagram, liked each other’s posts, planned a date, and decided to take your relationship to the next level.
Then, after some time, you realize that he no longer likes your posts or shows much attention as he did before.
The sudden change may be caused by a decrease in the initial excitement he had when meeting you.
That, however, does not mean that he does not follow you anymore.
Of course, he sees all your posts and appreciates them.
But because they do not impact his emotional and sexual excitement as they did before, he ends up passing them without reacting or even forgets to like them.
How do you deal with this new behavior?
Instead of blaming your man or feeling less confident to post again, why not change your posting tactics?
Think about what attracted him in the first instance and improve on that.
You can also mention him in the post to capture his attention whenever he scrolls down the platform.
Only be careful not to mention him too much because this can still irritate him.
2. You post too much
Posting too much on social is also a major reason why you no longer get intended likes or traction.
The fact that you like posting every moment of your life does not mean guys will like every post or show you much-anticipated attention.
Yes, a man may like your sexy figure and how you pose when taking pictures. He may also like inspirational stories you post on your timeline.
Sadly, most men do not practically like seeing the same thing every time.
When you post too much, your man will feel like you expect him to acknowledge your posts all the time.
For this reason, he will intentionally skip your posts and not like them.
Some men will even go a step further to limit how much of your content they see on their timeline.
To deal with this, you only need to limit your posts. Know when and what to post to capture his attention and avoid crowding his timeline.
3. You spend enough time together
Every girl believes that her boyfriend should show her much attention both in person and on social media.
If he does not like her posts on social media, she will probably think her boyfriend is cheating on her or does not like if she is linked to her.
That, however, is contrary to what most men think about their girlfriends.
When a man gets into a relationship with you, he tends to focus more on himself and others whenever he is away from you or going through his social media pages.
That means he may not like your posts every time he sees them.
However, this does not mean he is not interested in you anymore.
He only believes that since he spends most of his day with you, he doesn’t need to knowledge all your posts on social media.
4. You post less visual content
In a digital era where everyone has a camera, posting visually-captivating content will significantly impact your followers, including your boyfriend.
That means another reason he is not liking your posts is that they are not visually captivating and he ends up skipping them.
Remember, everyone likes to see what keeps them glued to their screens and motivates them.
Therefore, if your posts do not contain inspirational images or videos, chances are he will not even bother seeing and liking them.
To capture your boyfriend’s attention on social media, you need to change your posting strategies and focus on visual content.
Instead of posting your pictures only, you should include encouraging videos, images, or anything that tickles his mind.
You should also avoid posting things that only talk about you. Instead, think about your followers and post things that impact their lives.
5. He is concerned about his social media privacy
Another saddest reason why he doesn’t like your posts is that he is more concerned about his social media privacy.
He knows that when he likes your posts, the platform will send notifications to all your mutual friends, who will then know of his social media activities.
This will probably go against his preferences, especially if he likes staying private.
He may not also like your posts if they contain sensitive information that he does want to be linked with.
While this may leave torn between understanding and leaving him because he does not want to be associated with you, there is nothing you can do when it comes to personal privacy.
Instead, you only need to give him time, maybe one day he will react.
The bottom line
Is your boyfriend making you feel less like his girlfriend because he does not like posts on social media?
Or, do we just say you are insecure about why he does not show much attention on social media as he does in real life?
While there are various reasons why your man does not react to your content, the only thing you should understand is that social media is so trivial to worry about your relationship with him.
However, if you feel there is something wrong with him not liking your posts, then you should talk to him and make him understand how it feels when he ignores you.
You can as well adjust your posting and focus on things that mean a lot to both of you.
