I got an e-mail of a notification of someone liking my blog. How does someone “like” my blog? I don’t see a “like” button on the page. The notification had a gratuitous comment that I found confusing: “They thought [Post Title] was pretty awesome. You should go see what they’re up to. Maybe you’ll like their blog as much as they liked yours!” First I thought my friend had written this as a quoted comment. I wondered who the “They” was that she was writing about. Anyway it was kind of silly because my friend and I are not of the generation who use the word “awesome” regularly. Also, does WordPress “know” that my friend has a blog (I don’t think she does) or does WordPress expect me to go running off searching for one?
Sadly, just also be aware that “Likes” have been gamed by sp^mm3rs trying to get your site visitors to click their gravatar and visit their spammy sites via their gravatar profile. As a result, many of us long-time community members have turned off “Likes” under Dashboard>Settings>Sharing.
The topic ‘What does "Liked your Post" mean?’ is closed to new replies.
