Default New Likes Option Available

For those who want the option to "like" a post rather than to "thank" it, you will now see text that you can click within a post.

New Likes Option Available-like1.jpg

You will receive a notification of new likes near the upper right hand corner of the community or you can view them on you profile.

If you prefer NOT to receive notification of likes, you can change the settings in edit options within your control panel.

Ignore the hearts you are seeing right now. I sent in a ticket to have that changed to thumbs up.

This is interesting, it's going to change the whole 'thank ratio dynamic.

I might be inclined to thank an informative post that's rather dry, or like some goofy post that makes me laugh. More options, cool.

this might help me out though since most people don't like to thank me or admit to agreeing to most of my post for some reason ( now you can be anonymous and do it). don't care either way though...

It's just an option. Nothing more. Nothing less. Sometimes you want to tell someone thank you and sometimes ya just wanna click like.

Why are you whining? You are a smidge over the much coveted 50% mark for thanks versus posts.

How does one know if your post is liked or not? Shouldn't there be a listing like the thanks?

In addition to the alerts (which you can click to view when you receive them) and within the posts themselves, on your profile you will see "likes" within your mini statistics. If you click on the number of likes, it opens a new tab which provides more information.
