Facebook is worth about 70 billion, they're doing something right, lol. I'm just being cantankerous, I don't really care one way or the other. I would use it but I wish I commented on more stuff too.

Man is this silly or what??? To say a Thank button is better than a like button is so silly. There is no difference except that there is wasted space saying who posted a thanks. I think +1 is worse than all the buttons. Nothing was gained by doing that or just posting a smiley with a thumbs up. Get over it. This is silly. I too belong to many forums and the like button is in use and it does not detract from comments. If someone wants to make a comment or ask a question they will do so.

At least when someone comes here they can at least acknowledge they seen the post by hitting a like button instead of just ignoring it. There are many who just do not like posting comments and it is done in fear they would be ridiculed.

Now if the owner of the site does not want it then just come out and say it. Then there is no discussion. Did I mention this is silly. By the way I could care less weather it is there or not. I do not use any of them. And if i do I still make a comment.

Let me add an amen to that as well. While I like and use Facebook it is open to way to much stupid crap that gets a zillion likes. Nope don't want that here.

unlike.

I have one friend on Facebook. Haven't been on in over a year. Way too intrusive. They know which finger you pick your nose with

Well the "thanks" button has been here and you can click it without posting. Yes it was both meant to be funny and have a little truth. Thanks has a little better feel then just like and it has the same meaning. You don't say thanks if you don't like something. However you can like something and not be thankful. We teach our children to say thanks or thank you not to say oh i like that gift. Its more polite.

You sure spent a lot of time posting about something silly. Thank you for your input and effort. Like it if you want to.
