Has anyone read an especially humorous or clever post on TC, and reflexively swung their mouse pointer down to the bottom of the post, to click on "Like"... experienced a moment of confusion or disorientation... then thought, "Doh! I'm not on Facebook!"

Uh, I certainly haven't, but I just wondered if it's happened to someone...

Considering that you're a Grand Member, in a way, there actually IS a "Like" button. It's at the bottom of every thread and it looks like this:



By clicking on the button you are casting a vote to put the thread on the "Cool and Current" list. Okay, so you probably knew that already, but it's almost the same thing as a "Like" button.

Yes, I've used that for great threads, but that is "liking" the whole thread, not the particular post that impressed you.
I don't want a 'Like' button added, here... I'm fine with everything, as is. It was just an observation that, if you are frequently switching between TC and FB, it's hard to escape that impulse.

Why would you be switching back and forth to begin with? Wouldn't that make you dizzy?

Whoops, you made me go looking for the 'Like' button, again!

All kidding aside,* the Like button is one of the greatest contributions to Internet interactions. The Like button is similar to a Hallmark card cuz it makes it easy to say something without saying anything at all. Absolutely perfect for when you care just enough to press a button.






*Actually, that'll never happen.
