Thumbs Up????

Thumbs Up????

Post  brianj555 on 10/16/2017, 8:34 am

When I give someone a thumbs up for offering me helpful information, do they see it?  I see that I have given it to them with a "1" beside the thumbs up button.  When I don't have anything to say, other than "Thank you for that Info" I give them a thumbs up.  I am just checking because I don't want these people who have been helpful to think I am ignoring them.  
Can anyone explain the "Thumbs Up" deal more to me?

Brian ... I don't think the thumbs up thing is used very often. I don't bother with it myself.

I use it all the time, but I also post a  thanks reply, just to make sure.

I dont think you can see your own thumbs up on your posts.  But you can see how many people have thumbed up a post just not yours....not really that helpful, actually.  I agree with TD.

It's just a quick way to like, agree with, thank, etc a post without necessarily posting a response. Like it...or not...use it...or not...choice is yours. It just sort of falls in line with today's social media quick acknowledgement type responses without making a comment.

I use them, and appreciate them, but I don't rely on them as "data" -- i.e. I don't interpret a lack of thumbs ups as having any meaning.

So the user that gets the thumbs up can see it?  Can they tell who sent it?

Brian, I just gave you a thumbs up on your last post in this thread. Can you see who did it?

I can see that I got two thumbs ups, but not who gave them to me, unless I don't know where to look or how to check.

Strange, but I can't see any thumb symbols, much less any number, and I'm a Mod. Hmmm
