Re: "Hearting" a Post Here - What Exactly Does it Mean?

To me, the heart does not necessarily mean that I agree with what the poster said. It is just a way of expressing some sort of emotion: "I empathize with you." "That's funny." "I'm sorry to hear that." "My thoughts are with you."  It can mean whatever you want it to mean, just as a real heart feels many emotions. Basically, it is just a quick way of responding when you want to leave a "message" but either don't have the time or don't know exactly what to say. Let's face it...we live in a rush, rush world.


Very well said! Totally agree. Heart

Re: "Hearting" a Post Here - What Exactly Does it Mean?

As for me it can mean:

 

I agree with you/ feeling you/ understand where you’re coming from, if it’s someone I ‘know’ it might also mean:

 

Hi

Good to see you

Thinking of you

Thanks for posting this

I hope they never get a thumbs down here.  No benefit IMO.

I noticed that some people who start a thread will heart all who reply as a way of acknowledging their participation and not necessarily applauding their opinion.  I too have done that but it does give the recipient the wrong message if you are in complete disagreement with their opinion.  But who cares anyway, you know?  I can't honestly remember who all I heart until I see the list on the left margin.  Woman Surprised


I have seen some posters 'heart' posts that I am pretty sure were disparaging to them.  Not sure why they would.

I wouldn't heart something I disagreed with either.

@tends2dogs  That would sink this place for good.

 

Hearts are positive; I've seen thumbs down elsewhere, just to be mean, on the most innocent of posts.

 

Some posters use them because they just don't like another poster; no sense stirring up more nonsense around here.

Hi Sunny, @sunala

 

Can only speak for myself on this topic, and it will be short. It says: "I kinda like and/or agree with your post".
