AR and the Like Button
The LIKE button became a feature of AR during my AR hiatus and upon my return it was immediately noticeable. At the time, I couldn't figure out whether I liked the infiltration of Facebook-like features. Well, I've finally come to the conclusion that I'm not a big fan of the AR "LIKE" feature. I just seems so out of place here.
In my opinion, particularly with regard to my post, it simply means that I've read your comment. It doesn't necessary mean that I liked your comment. But you'll know that I've read it because I respond to EVERY comment and I'll call you by name in my response.
Same goes for a post that you may have written. If I "like" it, sometimes it means that I actually "like" it and other times it means that I've simply read it.
I find that on my own post, I'll reply to a comment and am reminded that I didn't "like" the person's comment, when someone "likes" my post or another commenter's comment. Then I'll go back and "like" their comment as a courtesy. I always get the feeling that they'll feel left out if I've liked other's comments and didn't "like" theirs when in fact, I probably just forgot or simply overlooked the "like" button for which I'm not a fan of anyway.
Any who, this is just my Thursday morning ramblings. Yeah I know. It's child's play. Don't pay me no nevermind.
Have an awesome day.
