    Default New "like" button?

    Popped into the forum today and discovered all the posts in the threads have a new "like" button. At least, I had never noticed it before . . .

    Is it new functionality? Is it tied to Facebook???

    PS: my own post does not have it when I create this thread. Interesting, that I can't "like" my own post. LOL!

    It is very new It doesn't seem to be connected to facebook in anyway. It is a forum feature. You get notifications on your user cp if you got "liked".

    So . . . do other users see what has been liked? How is it different / better than reputation?

    (and, thanks for liking the post to demonstrate!)

    Rep is more personal. Also, you can let a person know you disagree with them about something, which you can't do with the like button.

    Different buttons for different needs.

    I didn't notice it... but bhuz added that feature a few months back. I like it (no pun intended).

    I'm glad there is no dislike button! All positive energy.

    I got notification of two likes but then I looked them up and there were none. Maybe they didn't like after all?

    People are probably clicking the likes to see what happens and unclicking... I wouldn't take it personal
