I Don't Get Why Creators Say, "Like, Comment, Share, and Subscribe"

I don’t understand why YouTubers, bloggers and podcasters ask their audiences to please “like, comment, share, and subscribe”.

They want to grow — I get that. I used to do this too when I started my podcast.

But is this a tactic that works? Am I missing something? 


But I don’t think these creators would ever cook a dish for their friends and then say to them, “Please like it, tell people you know how much you love it and tell me you want more of this too.”

So why do that online?

If people genuinely like my stuff, I believe, they’ll then like, share and subscribe anyway. No? 

We don’t need a call to action for that.

I NEVER like, share or subscribe to something because I’m told to. I do it when I feel like I want to.
