I'm curious how people are using the" Like" button now that there's an unlimited supply. I have never been overly generous with my "Likes", in fact, I seldom ran out of likes before the limit increase. There has always been far too much good content posted on the website for me to like everything worthy of a like. So, instead of using up my daily quota of likes, I would only like posts that hit a chord with me for one reason or another. I'm not sure my habits will change that much now that there's no limit because I always considered the "Like" button to be used for those special posts, and not to be tossed around casually. 

So, I guess I am curious how others decide what to like and how they use their unlimited likes. Do you like someone's post if your name is mentioned? Do you like someone's post if they voice agreement with you? Do you like a post because of a great photo or does it have to be a photo of a great bird to get your like? Do you like a post because the info/ID provided is accurate? Do you like a post just because no one else has liked it and you don't want anyone to feel left out? Do you like almost every post you read just because you can? Do you like explaining what you like? Go for it. 😁

I use "like" in the ID forums to indicate that I agree with the ID but don't have anything else to add. In other posts, I use funny and thank you again when that's all I need to say. Funny means I found your post amusing. I'll use sad occasionally if someone posts something upsetting and I want to offer a tiny bit of support. Otherwise I like posts if I like them. I really don't give it a lot of thought beyond that; it doesn't really mean that much in the end. I rarely use the confused reaction, except perhaps occasionally for humor. If I'm confused I'll usually want to answer ask a question.

Since I've had unlimited likes for a while I haven't changed my habits, except that I used to hit like when someone else indicated that they were out of reactions and wanted to like a post. No need for that anymore.

My thought process on likes is the same as yours. Hence, I hit "like" on your post. :classic_laugh:
