I was thinking this earlier today!

I guess the “+1” is the like button

@figgnewton:  There’s a ‘love it’ feature on theknot that I really like.
I do the “+1” thing sometimes, but then the post starts to fill up with “+1s” instead of full replies

A like button would be nice. I do think people would comment less, because sometimes they’re just commenting to agree with someone, but the threads would be cleaner and flow better. I don’t think the comments that are lost would be the ones that bring a lot to the discussion.

If there were both “like” and “dislike” buttons, it would be easier to see what the public opinion is on a particularly controversial post or reply, which would also be nice. Sometimes I wish for both buttons when I really want to “dislike” a post without thread jacking or participating in a flame war, but then I think a “dislike” button would intimidate the more sensitive bees and prevent them from posting comments if they don’t side with the majority.

I agree that +1 is sort of like a “like”…but then we also tend to add a comment. So it might detract from actual comments, but then you’d know how many people who don’t commennt like what you’re saying!

@figgnewton:  I actually had this same exact thought today! I constantly wish there was a like button, but since there isn’t I do think it makes me comment more than i would otherwise

Sometimes I feel the urge to click “like” and I almost click “flag”. Luckily I’ve caught myself in time 🙂
