    Like, as you may know, is a relatively new feature. Like, like my likes! We all can now happily "like" a person's post like in Facebook where like, like is liked by those who want to like! I wish we could like, like likes of our own liking like, at anytime, so like, like will be like, liked by those likes who like the likers!

    What is your general opinion on likes? Do you like a lot? What are your criteria fitting "likes"? Do you believe hybrids of the current system (Like thumbs up and thumbs down) can be implemented, do you think it is relevant enough? How do you react when someone likes your post? Is it the same as saying "nice!" or "thank you" or those simple messages?

    (you may proceed to like this post and give me a hundred notifications the next time I check this place and basically kill me just to show appreciation)

    I like a post when i think its a good opinion on something or if the post made me laugh a lot.
    Im not too hyped with likes, i have a lot of them on my posts, but i dont really care. I dont post for likes *cough* Facebook *cough*
    I just wanna say goodbye,
    dissappear with no one knowing~
    I don't wanna live this lie,
    smiling to the world unknowing~

      On this forum, I normally like posts that have the same ideas as me or if I appreciate what they posted. However, on Facebook, I really don't like that many things. I only like posts if they are actually really funny to me. But, I myself, normally get a lot of
      likes on my stuff because I try and post funny things!

      I'm in it for the likes!

        I always like every post I liked.
        If someone likes my post, I'll check their profile and do nothing. xD
        But unlike in Facebook, if someone likes my post, I'll say thank you to them.

        I often used the likes feature a lot on Facebook back in the days I used to use the site regularly. When PC implemented the system I tended to hit that like button on almost any post that grabbed my attention and then *BAM* I got an emblem for it. I mostly tend to like posts that also mention something I really love right now or make me laugh. I did turn off notifications for when any of my posts gets liked due to certain reasons, but at least you now know there's an emblem you can get for liking a lot of posts.

        I like posts when I have the same opinion as the posters, when I appreciate what the poster as said and wish to thank him or her, when I genuinely like the contents of the posts, when the posts are meaningful, or when the posts resonate with me at that point of time. I feel that this system is a great way of efficiently giving a thumbs up when words are not necessary, similar to real life. I like quite a lot, but not too much. I should try liking more though! Haha. When someone likes my posts, I see it as a way to keep on improving myself, as well as thanking the person silently for that small but meaningful gesture.

        I was really happy when this feature was implemented because it gave you a way to agree with agree with a post without having to actually respond.

        I usually like posts if I agree with them or if I find them incredibly funny. I have started using this feature a bit more frequently as of late and I now probably like somewhere between 3-5 posts per day.

          If a post makes me laugh or if I very well agree with it, I'll like it. Other than that, I don't really like generic posts.

          I tend to do the "Like & Comment" method. I like a post, and sometimes I make a post comment on why i liked said post. I want people to know why I liked it rather than assume the reasons. xD

          I know you're gonna like this one too don't get me wrong. :D

          I like posts if they're funny or if someone's opinion triggers an epiphany on me... which admittedly happens with quite some frequency x3

          Anyone notice how each post in this thread has been liked at least once? :o

            I don't like posts a lot. On Facebook, I have to moderate what I like because my grandma yells at me if I like something with offensive content or obscenities in it.

              I really don't care, so much so that I got a mention in Announcements.
              I do occasionally like posts in CQ&F where a simple '+1 to this opinion' might be relevant.

              No. As they'd say in 2008, TPC isn't a social networking site. That argument is no longer likely to be seen as valid, but I do also think likes are... too positive — can I say that? I mean to say that likes are of an 'everyone is a winner' attitude. With post comments heavily marginalised, there's no real channel for neutral or negative feedback on posts without it being confrontational.

              well I kinda forget about the likes 99% of the time and what comes around goes around so the most likes I've ever gotten on one post is around 3, and only about 50 all-time (though you might say that's pretty good but tbh who cares right).

              It's a good way to show your approval tbh but I don't know how the negative feedback can happen also.

              I never thought I'd enjoy the likes system as much as I do. <3 I like posts that are funny or just ones that I agree with/find to be an enjoyable read. The most likes I've gotten on a single post was 9 or 10 iirc, though they were within the staff forums.

              I love getting newly liked posts. I'd rather someone like my post and have a notification for that than getting a visitor message.

              I usually like a post if it left an impression on me, if it made me laugh, or if I felt it was informative and helpful for someone.

              Admittedly, I was really sceptical of adding likes to PC when it was first suggested. I didn't think it was needed and didn't see the point so I'm really surprised at how much I've come to love the system. It's so nice to be able to publicly show my appreciation for a post without having to reply--to come up with some response to the thread when all I want to do is give a quick kudos. I don't really notice or care much when any of my posts get liked but I do appreciate the quick feedback and it can be kind of fun trying to figure out as I post whether or not it'll be one that triggers people to hit the button. (More often than not, I find it's posts that I didn't really expect to get any attention that seem to be liked the most. I'm usually pretty surprised to log in and find like notifications on certain posts.)

              I am glad there is no negative aspect to the system, though. I think if there is ever a reason to dislike the post, it makes a lot more sense to either leave a private message (PM or post comment) or actually reply to the post to rebut or argue against the content.

                I like (no pun intended) this idea because it shows when people find your post funny, entertaining, interesting, or insightful. I personally won't really bother liking posts too often (that's just me) but it's cool to have it there. Besides, what harm could it bring anyways?

                  I like the likes system, because I'm a very lazy poster on here and can just like things instead of posting. Of course I'm hoping that there will always be someone who posts an opinion I agree with so I can just like it. I especially find it useful in the Debates forum since I'm not good at debating myself and would probably overreact at some statements being posted so I just lay back and click 'like' on the statements I agree with.
