Borhamy: Desire for Facebook ‘Likes’ corrupting the heart

Chairman of the Salafi Dawah Yasser Borhamy warned of taking pride in Facebook “Likes” saying it has became a serious disease. He called on Facebook users to seek God's satisfaction with their deeds, not people's praise.
Borhamy responded to a question by a follower of “I am the Salafi” website on whether publishing useful posts on Facebook was considered a Sadaqa (act of charity). The follower added he sometimes felt upset for not getting “Likes” or comments on his posts. 
“Am I sincere or hypocrite? I hope you help, because I'm at a loss myself because of this,” the follower wrote.
“Facebook ‘Likes’ are most probably a serious disease that has corrupts the hearts of many people. Be careful seeking them and let your intentions be for God's sake only, without heeding people,” Borhamy responded.
