Number, upside down heart and heart - what do they mean?
Hello everyone and thank you for taking the time to read my discussion topic.
I am wondering what the number and two hearts signifies at the bottom of everyones comments. I assume the hearts are for users to "like" and "unlike" the comments, but what does that do to the comment?
Also, when I "like"/ "heart" someones post, it brings their number down. What does the number mean?
Thanks again for taking the time to read this. I tried using the search bar to find an answer, but after reading many posts - I had no luck.
It's a common misconception that they are hearts. They are actually arrows. Up is positive and down is negative. This voting system influences the order of posts. The more popular a comment, the higher it will be in a discussion. Posts with the same popularity will be sorted based on which was made first. Posts that get too many negative votes (down arrow) might be hidden from direct view.
