Once again WordPress has instituted a new feature without a word to us bloggers. Or if there was a word, I missed it.
I was over reading timethief’s latest post and learned in the process that Comment Likes are now active on our blogs. Go to Dashboard > Settings > Sharing and you’ll find it as the very last item on the page. (When was the last time you looked down there?)
I’ve enabled the feature for now. We’ll see how it goes.
What do you think about Comment Likes? Good idea? Bad Idea? Remember, it’s your comments here that will be getting Likes. How do you feel about that?
Speak! I can be persuaded …
Update, March 10, 2014:
I’ve decided I don’t like the feature and am turning it off. Too much clutter and an obvious “in” for Like spammers (just like the Like button for posts). For those who wanted to see what the Comment Likes look like, here’s a screenshot. The pop-up is what you see when you mouse over “2 people.”
