Add a 'Cheer' button to cheer on friends who use Duolingo!

I have a suggestion. I think we should have a way to cheer our friends that we follow on Duolingo when we want to congratulate them for doing well and/or motivate them to keep going and do more. I am not sure how to implement it, but I know my Fitbit application has a 'cheer' option to cheer on friends, and it is a fun way to keep everyone going. Maybe we can do something like that!? I think that would be great! :-)

When you get cheered on, there must be the following:

clears throat

-Confetti everywhere -Party blowers -Applause/the sound of an entire audience showing their appreciation of your fine work

That's kinda like upvotes, but way better! I think maybe on someone's stream, where you can comment or like something you can have a cheer button too! Although it's kinda just like liking something. You can only do that on an activity stream though.

Oh, ok. I see that in the activity section, there is a way to like and comment on your and your friends' progress. I like that, however I think I can only see this on my desktop. It would be nice to have something like this on the app for the phone.

Also, and I know it is a different app, but on the Fitbit app, when you 'cheer' someone, they get a notification , and have an option to 'cheer' you back. It would be cool to have an easy way to cheer and be notified of cheers.
