To get into the eyes of people these days Social Media is the easiest way. Making friends, posting whatever we know and see how many people watched and what is their reaction is fun these days for many people. Such people will be always expecting a good number of people liking and commenting on his posts. Added to that the social media will also be remaining us how many people liked it and how many people commented on that etc.
I rarely post on social media and I never expect any likes or comments on my posts. Many people slowly losing interest in such things, I feel. Earlier I used to spend some time on Social Media. But these days very rarely I visit those sites.
Some like to get fame by such an act while some want to be in the frame always and like to be appreciated by people. When a person gives a true or valued comment, they get sad or angry. They always want to get good comment and expect people to play the diplomacy game by saying or providing good comments on their posts.
Some people use this reference to attract people to their blog or other paid site and can even earn money. There are many things that can be done through social media. Some use it for information, some for fun while some for spreading fake news.

I strongly disagree with the fact that people should ask for likes. They should post something that deserves to be liked. The likes should only someone deserves it.
One of the reasons people ask for likes because they might be doing some social advertising for their products. They might be a part of some search engine optimization.

Even this challenging situation would ease
Those who are longing for comments or likes are those people who in their real lives too are always after others appreciation. The word like itself will tell the whole story. They want more likes which means they want a number of people to nod their heads in favour of them. In real life too they gather everyone around and want them to give an affirmation favouring them. When they are in social media, they are doing the same thing. More the number of likes and comments they receive, more psychologically rewarding it is for them.
Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.
