She doesn’t ‘like’ what she sees on Romney’s Facebook page

This is regarding Friday’s article, headlined “A Facebook glitch has liberals irate.” As someone who brought this issue to the attention of the Globe, I am compelled to mention that I found the headline a bit misleading.

The word “glitch” implies some kind of malfunction. My point in shedding light on the issue of people appearing as supporters on Mitt Romney’s Facebook page when they are not was to suggest that it may not have been accidental.


How does a Facebook glitch make someone click “like” in the middle of the night when the person is asleep? What about the Facebook user who had to have clicked “like” after he had been dead for three months?

Incidentally, there seems to be no occasion when a Romney supporter has found himself “liking” President Obama on Facebook.
