This seems like a good idea – a way of showing appreciation when you don’t really have anything to say in reply. I’ve just enabled it on my blog – let me know what you think!
P.S. If you have a WordPress account you can also “like” a comment from your notifications box – no need to visit the post just for that. (Actually, the whole comment likes feature is only available to WordPress users – same as post likes.)
P.P.S. If you don’t want to get an email every time someone likes one of your comments, go to your Account Notification Settings and disable that.
I’m sure we’ve all experienced this — reading through a comment thread, and seeing a particularly well-written comment, whether it be informative, insightful, or just plain funny. You want to show the commenter that you appreciate their work, but don’t have a reply for them, so you just move on. Well, those days are over!
Comment Likes are now available on all WordPress.com sites. We’ve seen how much you enjoy Post Likes, and want to bring that kind of love to comments, too. When you enable Comment Likes on your site, you’ll see a small Like appear below all the comments on your site, just like this one.
You and all your readers can click it to show your appreciation!
If you prefer to read in the WordPress Android or iOS apps, we’re working hard to bring Comment Likes to both of them as well — stay tuned for upcoming releases.
