what does it mean to like something?

Many of us who blog regularly have, I guess, asked themselves why did so and so like my post? Did they read it? Do they agree with me or is it just to say they stopped by?

Is the meaning ofย  to ‘like’ a post obvious or are there different permutations or possibilities why we click on the like button? And why do you as a blogger have the like button activated for your posts?

Take for example twitter; it has retweet, reply and like buttons. I often like a tweet that makes me laugh. A tweet that I agree with, I may retweet and those that somehow I feel call for conversation I respond.

These and more are the questions asked in the post below.

It would be interesting to know why you like a post.
