What do you use the Favorite ⭐ thingy for?
I mark a toot with Favorite ⭐...
My idea of marking a toot a Favorite ⭐ is so that I can later see that post in my Favorites.
But it seems that many people use it to mark toots as Seen or Read. And some use it as a Like button. What say you?
I'm considering doing the seemingly more popular practice of using Favourite as a Seen or Read marker. 🤔
@evelynyap I use it as sort of a like/acknowledgement signal.
As in, "yeah I'm out here and I see you but I don't feel like saying anything at the moment" 😃
@evelynyap I had some web automation that would track my favorite tweets. It’s somewhat interesting looking at them years later.
I remember years ago when I was new to Twitter, my first Favorite tweets were Bono's. Then his account mysteriously disappeared, apparently taken down by Twitter. The tweets I marked as Favorites disappeared as well. I asked Twitter about Bono's account disappearing. They responded, with zero explanation. 😕
Technically its for bookmarking but everyone Use it everywhere as to showcase that they are being nice to you. Kind of thing more of being social with one another, I guess
Yeah, I thought so too @inditoot 🤔 But only a few of survey respondents use it that way.
@Gargron Will there be a separate Like button in the future?
Maybe a #Love ❤️ button instead? (Since Like 👍 is already very much associated with FB). Spreading love is good thing me thinks.
Generalistic and moderated instance.
