What's a better way to engage your audience? Upvote vs like/heart? For simplicity let's assume both are anonymous.
What factors should you take into account when choosing one over the other? Does it even matter really?
‘Like’ has a social media stigma attached to it. If that doesn’t bother you, go for it.
‘Upvotes/Downvotes’ have an IH/Reddit vibe.
My advice: come up with something new and create your own standard.
Familiar is good, but it can also breed contempt.
Another example: Medium uses claps
I don't think it matters. On mvp.fyi I call it "empathy" and its visualised with a love heart.
Create better-looking, better-functioning apps and websites.
