I have never actually noticed that they were there.

Not on social media

I don't believe that they are here.

I forgot about them so haven't used them.

Agree with Gildas and Dan.

I hadn't seen them either.

Obviously a resounding success then !!!!

Where? Don't see ‘em, don't see evidence of them, so for me they might as well not exist. And I'm thinking we don't need ‘em anyway.

Quick show of hands: who wants to make it easier for anyone paying FB to determine your opinions and associates and track you down?

I proposed something similar but this is what was implemented.

I was hoping there could be an internal Like system to briefly express approval about a post without having to type it all out.

Any connection to posting or linking/liking stuff directly to Facebook is unneeded and should go.

BUT, I'd rather not have to type "Nice!" or "Great figs" on TMP posts that deserve it.

Flashman that is pretty much how I'd have liked it as well--i'm not interested in being on Facebook.

FB is far more dangerous than it is uninteresting. Everyone chips in a little bit of data and then looks appalled when FB promptly sells a mountain of the stuff--like pebbles rolling merrily downhill and unable to figure out where the avalanche comes from.

Ah. I see they are only on the main subject post and not the responses.

The location of the button is in an odd place so I 'm not surprised many people have noticed it. I have used them in the past when I like really enjoy the post.

Other: What buttons?

Old Contemptible07 Aug 2019 10:00 a.m. PST

Oh, I see them.

"The location of the button is in an odd place so I 'm not surprised many people have noticed it"

This is the issue, and it is a very odd placement. A Like button should be available per post not per original topic. Perhaps place it next to the Complain button
