I thought the words "like" and "hang out" were references to facebook's "like" and google's "hang out". What do the native speakers think? -- (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Not in this case- here they're just being used as the everyday terms that facebook and google co-opted. -- (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)
Native speaker here: there doesn't seem to be anything distinctive about the use of 'like' and 'hang out' in this comic to indicate they might be references. -- (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)
I agree. -- (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)
The words aren't out of place otherwise, so it just might be a (big) coincidence. I still find it likely to be true. 11:18, 5 December 2012 (UTC)
Another native speaker here. You typically would not "hang out" – in real life – with people you don't like – as in you like your friends. There's nothing in the comic to make me think there's any connection with Facebook or Google+. 11:44, 5 December 2012 (UTC)
