@Gargron Favourite-like has always seems like it's the wrong feature. People never used it for what it presented itself as.
Wondering if Slack-style freeform emoji reactions aren't a lot closer to what people actually want.

I also use it as an acknoweledgement sometimes, but in most cases when it happens (not always), I feel it as a sort of “dialogue defeat”. Something like “Hmm, well, I agree with this, but I have nothing more to say and it isn’t something I think deserve to be spreaded, therefore I simply applaud, like a mute viewer of this show”.
Maybe it’s exxagerated, but also IRL these mechanism gives an end to the dialogue.
@Ca_Gi ~same. I use the favourite button 2 ways, which may not be as intended, but seems commonly understood.
1) When post is @ me, it means, I acknowledge receiving but have no further response. 2) I liked what you posted, separate from whether I choose to boost it.
Since I use it so often for those things, I rarely use it simply as a bookmark because I'd never find it again among the others anyway.
