Liking a status comment, picture comment or wall post that someone has posted on your facebook, Not because you agree with the comment, find it funny or actually like it but because you feel sorry for the person who posted it.
You may feel like replying to the comment would make you look as pittiful as them, but not replying will make you look like a douche, so you 'like' it to save face.
You can also use a pitty like if someone asks you something you dont want to answer, See example two.
Not to be confused with Envy liking
Guy 1: Man kyle left a really unfunny comment on my status about how the BAFTAS are a total set up, it was too lame.
Guy 2: Aw, Dont reply man, give him a pitty like, that guys the fucking anti poon.

You like this Comment (Y)
When you like someones status comment, picture comment or wall post on you're facebook.
You don't do it just because you like the post or comment but because you envy it so much you can't think of anything better to comment.
for example if their joke is too funny and you can't top it, instead of trying a comment back you just like their comment, to save perhaps embaressing yourself or wrecking their comment or post.
Other examples are when theirs no need for a comment and you're just showing you're envy of their facebook comment or post. this can be on your facebook or someone elses, see example 2.
Not to be confused with a Pitty Like
