Using the 'like' button


#1

I just want to confirm when I ‘like’ a comment if it is factual or someone is recounting bad news, I am not saying I like their misfortune, I am using it as a form of solidarity or agreement. Everyone else uses it like this right?

I use it in the exact same way I used to use (the vastly superior) ^This


#3

What ‘like’ button?


#4

^this


#5

seconded


#6

…that ↓


#7

I use it for a lot of things tbh, but absolutely including what you have described.


#8

Rather unusually I also use it when I like a comment


#9

I’m so glad someone’s brought this up. Sometimes I used it as a ^this sometimes as a like. How will they know the difference? It’s minefield.

We need a poll…
Er…
How do you make a poll?


#10

I AM ON IT!!!


#11

whereas I am very much indicating I am enjoying another poster’s misfortune

TYPES OF LIKING (check those you use):

  • lol funny comment
  • Acknowledging something that was directed at me
  • Someone has posted something sad/bad news/etc and I’m liking the post because I don’t know what to say
  • Ironically liking someone who’s being a dick
  • Liking an in-joke to show that I get it
  • YES I AGREE WITH THIS POST
  • I fancy the person who posted this

0 voters

That ought to cover it

I don’t know why you can’t vote for every option, sorry


#14

Tried to include this by way of edit but someone had already posted. You’re on your own here, japesy


#15

I’m happy to see the back of THIS. It was so easy to abuse, and it was devastating to see so many people THISSING a post that condemned you.


#16

The THISSING of HATE.


#17

We, the likers of this post, hereby condemn @ninetyeightytwo for all eternity


#18

Because you set the maximum option number to 6.


#19

Well he’s right. It was always shitty when you were on the other end of a This-bully assault.

I’ve fallen over and hurt my knee.
