Should FlyerTalk Have a “Like” Button?
S ince its inception in February of 2011, members of Milepoint have been using what is known as a “like” button if they liked any content which is posted; and “likes” are part of the formula which enables members to elevate in status: from general members to those with Silver and Gold elite level status.
There is also the vaunted Platinum elite level status; but to my knowledge, no one has attained it — yet, anyway.
Now members of TalkBoard are mulling over the pros and cons of whether or not to add a “like” button to FlyerTalk. As there are no elite status levels to be earned by members of FlyerTalk, “likes” would only be used in appreciation for content posted in discussions — possibly with the added benefit of reducing the amount of times that “+1” is added to a discussion.
Furthermore — if a “like” button is indeed implemented on FlyerTalk — should it really be called “informative”?
As of the time this article was posted, of the 267 members who already voted in the poll — which is shown above — 51.32 percent of FlyerTalk members oppose the addition of a “Like” button to FlyerTalk; while 46.44 percent support its implementation. 2.25 percent of FlyerTalk members abstained.
The poll is scheduled to close on Saturday, January 17, 2015; so please be sure to vote and voice your thoughts and opinions in this discussion.
