Quick positive feedback#2

Many early testers have been lamented that the only way to give feedback is to comment on a photograph. While this helps spur discussion, it’s inherently heavier weight than just liking/favoriting/hearting the photograph.

In order to avoid constant count comparisons we plan to make this light weight positive feedback completely private.

The person receiving the “private like” will get a notification and the positive vibes, but this won’t be displayed publicly in the interface to anyone else.

Could there also be a means to view all of the photographs that we’ve previously liked? Again, this should be a private view for the “liker”.

I think you’re the second person asking for this that I’ve heard of so far Grant. We might not have that in the first iteration, but if more people want to have a record for personal use we can prioritize it for the future.

Works for me.

I also like that there are alternatives to ‘comment-only’ being considered.
I’d love Grant’s feature, too, Tom.

I find it very heartening that you’re putting this much care into avoiding harmful dopamine slot machines.

I think the proposed private-like solution is excellent. And I too would like to have a way to find my favorite photos from days and weeks past in a neat list.

However, this feels like two features. I don’t always want to communicate to a creator that I want to remember or like something they made. Only sometimes. And I think that a Like should be private to the liker and the poster and that the Favorite should be entirely private to the favoriter.

A thought I had instead of likes is simple engagement metrics. How many times did someone feel my photograph warranted a closer look? How many times have people been intrigued enough by a photo to explore the rest of my uploaded images? Those would be interesting to know, and I think more honest than a ‘like’ button.

While on the topic - can we also ban comments which are along the lines of “Great colors”, or “👍”. Those are quite generic and, imho, would hurt the community.

Dribbble’s and Behance’s comment section became useless because of folks craving for an attention.

Even with the likes, maybe having a daily limit would not be a bad idea. Liking 5 photos a day is plenty. It also gives certain weight to the action.

To me, to be forced to comment instead of just clicking on a like button is exactly what makes the charm of this platform. It makes me think about and examine the photo in a way that I never did on Instagram & co. because simply double clicking is just way less effort. But the thing is, receiving a single (thoughtful) comment on a photo (at least to me) is much more rewarding then dozens of likes. So my wish would be to not implement a liking feature (even if private), but instead maybe opt for a solution to add images to own collections as a way to keep track of special favorites (which could still trigger a private notification to the creator to show some appreciation this way) instead.

I’m honestly not interested in a like button. The reason I switched to a paid app like Glass was to get away from the obsession with popularity on other apps. I don’t want to know who liked my post unless it was interesting enough to discuss. I would like a way to bookmark photos I enjoy, and create albums/boards of “types” of photo. Perhaps even paid downloads, in case I see one I’d like to print out and hang on the wall

I was a bit confused this morning when I woke up to a weird notice. But I must say, nice work! The naming feels great and it’s discreet and nice implemented! 👌
