    I'm not a FB or other social media person (by choice; it's not that social media and techy things scare me) so I don't really get the "Like" thing. I come on the board and see (courtesy of the Alerts tab) that 21 people have "liked" my various posts. That's all well and good, but do people really like EVERYTHING I post? I cannot believe that is true. What is the purpose of "liking" something?

    Like? I thought it said Lick. No wonder I have all these streaks on my screen.....

    Affirmation that someone agrees with you, or just wants to acknowledge that you exist :) Roll with it, baby--People like you! They really, really like you!

    I'd like to like your post skimom2, but I don't want the OP to dislike me liking in the likes thread.....

    I don't use the like button only for thoughts that I agree with but sometimes just to let the person know that I read the post. Also, it comes in handy figuring out where you left off in a thread if you can see the last post you liked.

    I get the acknowledging part. That makes sense. Sort of like, "Hmm, yes, I see." Not necessarily "I totally agree with you!" I can live with that. Thanks!
    btw... I "liked" your post. My first one! (I think)

    I use like for lots of reasons. And I may not actually agree with what is said in the post, but I appreciate the person taking their time to share.

    I feel the Like feature is an opportunity to be friendly. I know I really like it when members like my posts. I mean, you like me! You really like me! Sorry...

    Eer... I should have not liked this post, yeah?:0:In fact, I agree with everything said above. I also like people's post when I agree with their opinion, or when I like the subject risen (like in this thread). Sometimes I push the button to let a person know I have read the post and appreciate this (to evade a lot of useless posts like "Yes, I totally agree with you").

    Ditto ! It builds a tighter community I think, and that is definitely a plus.

    Also it just feels good to be liked :jammin:

    I like the like option. When I first started posting on the board it helped me know that my posts were read and I wasn't just talking to myself. I've been known as the thread killer on a couple of other boards - I'd post and then there'd be silence - it was sad for me :(. Here's much better :). We're all pretty happy here.
