I’m sure I’m not the first person to think of this/say this, but I’d really love it if we could simply like comments on our work like we can like posts on threads.
There are some comments were there’s just not really anything you can reply with. Like when they comment, ‘haha’ or ‘lol!’ on a line. I want to be able to acknowledge the interaction, but I don’t really want to say, “IKR! Aren’t I-I mean, isn’t the MC so funny?” AWKWARD.
Right now, I simply reply to comments with a heart, which I know is basically the same thing. But being able to simply like a comment would allow writers to interact with readers without having to comment as well, so the number of comments would be more reflective of reader engagement.
Anybody agree? Or am I just nitpicky, haha!
