    Who else thinks YWN really needs a like button by comments? (and coffeeroom) it can be a thumbs up or “like”, i dont care, and if you dont need to add a “dislike ” button if youre concerned about discord….but please, YWN, please add a like button!

    the reason i am so passionate about this is because i think when you see one post has an overwhelmingly larger amount of likes than another post, it lends credence to the validity of the post. shows just how many people agree with that comment.
    And when certain not-so-smart people write not-so-nice things, and get very little, or no, likes, it might take away from the shining glory of having their nonsense put in print.
    Right now total nonsense has equal footing as brilliant wisdom, and id love a way to differentiate it.

    Besides, its the 21st cntury already. Come on YWN…..

    now how many likes would this get if there was a button?


    A like button makes people lazy. Now people write out their agreement or disagreement.

    Doing my best

    If there was a like button, i would be able to just hit it on b’lev echads post instead of having to right this.
    I think Belev Echad is right.

    Reb Yidd, not really. I hardly comment around here because i really dont have the time for it. But i do skim articles and comments, and i would love the opportunity to quickly “like” a posters response.

    And i would love to show support for those posters who stand up to the inflammatory garbage posted by some. Hence, a like button!


    If whatever message you want to get across is not worth the few seconds it takes to type it, it’s probably not worth saying at all.

    Certain websites that currently use a “like” button are experimenting with removing it. The “like” button produces an interesting physiological reaction and there is belief by some that it is unhealty.

    Now what YWN really could use would be a “reply” button that would automatically link the last post. Technically the HTML options allow that, but almost nobody uses it.


    Several major social media sites have removed like buttons or are considering doing so because of the adverse effects such “ratings” and “popularity” have on posters. Think of the loss in self-esteem that be incurred by Reb Yosef, MeirG,,TforT, and other emotionally fragile posters who might be driven to harm themselves in a frenzy of realization of their lack of self-worth. Think of all the posters frequently referenced as “self-hating” yidden, “am-haratzem”, etc. who might suddenly look up the meaning of these terms based on numerical metrics of their popularity (or lack thereof). Also, some recent studies show likes/dislikes actually resulting in a new loss in “engagement time” (aka time spent on the website” because readers will simply cliick on an imoji rather than draft a thoughtful posting. Lower engagement time means lower ad ratesl and fewer entertaining ad for makubalim coming from EY promising to cure your gout or provide a segulah to solve your elderly (22 yo) daughter’s shiduch crisis (for a small fee).



    Instructions, please.
