New LIKE button

AgrivilleAdmin's Avatar Feb 7, 2019 | 06:23 1 Hi everyone,
We’ve added a ‘LIKE’ button to Agriville, now you can LIKE posts. There’s a lot of users who follow Agriville everyday but don’t post so this gives the non-posters a chance to engage in the debates and discussion too.

You have to be Logged In to see & click the LIKE button and to LIKE a post. If you need your password you can email me or use the Forgot Password on the Log In screen.

But once you Like a post you cannot unlike it so choose wisely!

Cheers,
Nicole

    Now can we get a thumbs down icon? Reply With Quote

  • AgrivilleAdmin's Avatar Feb 7, 2019 | 06:41 3 I didn't add a thumbs-down button because I don't want to promote negativity, trying to keep it positive. Reply With Quote

  • Feb 7, 2019 | 07:21 4 Combine Forum has had this for sometime. If we dislike something can still go with the 👎 or 🖕😁. Reply With Quote

  • Feb 7, 2019 | 07:27 5 It should help those that are not currently engaging in threads but are reading ...to start in a small way...

    There's a few threads that could be use as polls by the like button....

    Will be interesting going forward.....but I am not looking for affirmation of my opinions....I will gladly defend them and engage in thought provoking discussions.....

    I like to hear both sides..... Reply With Quote

    If that's the case you would be better to just shut down the site. Reply With Quote

  • Feb 7, 2019 | 08:49 8 i think it may discourage people from posting. None of the older posters care how many likes they get and shouldn't this isn't high school Snapchat or what ever else where the popular kids post a picture of their toes and get 1,000 likes and if they don't they feel depressed about not getting likes for a week.
    I don't see the point of it.

    I wish more new people would
    post even if it's ideas I disagree with.

    I wish people would explain more why they have the views they do because just being a sheep and pushing a like button really does nothing. Besides there is more than one poster with more than one identity on here so the popularity contest is already rigged. Reply With Quote

  • Feb 7, 2019 | 09:51 9 I think the like button is a good idea. There are so many times that posters express exactly what I am thinking, but I do not reply because it would be repetitive.

    Having your 'name' show up in the list of likes may be a deterrent for some though.

    Feb 7, 2019 | 10:14 10 Social media is about selling ad space and revenue from those ads. Studies have shown the more you post and entrench in a particular topic, the more likely you will be responsive to the advertisements. The more pissed off you are, the more you will retain the ad and buy the product. Effective social engineering thru brain chemistry, you can't avoid it.

    Clicking "like" demonstrates the ability to show relative strength on a topic and further divides the group in ways more defined and focused, thereby increasing ad revenue.

    If the site is free, you are the product. So, click away, but remember you aren't here to post your opinion, it is completely irrelevant what you think, you're here to be marketed to in the most effective way in history. Reply With Quote
    Blaithin's Avatar Feb 7, 2019 | 12:16 11 Love it!

    A couple other forums I'm on utilize the Like option and it's great. Sure some might perceive it as some sort of popularity contest but I figure most people are adults and don't talk gobs of shit just to try and earn likes. Even if they do, the rest of the people are adults and not willing to spend their time feeding someone's ego.

    I use it when I appreciate someone's post, agree with it, laugh at the humour, etc. but feel it's unnecessary to post something that just says "LOL" or "I agree" or "Well said". It's almost disappointing to see a thread with 30 replies and you think it will be a good discussion, only to read it and find 3 good posts and the rest filler of agreements.

    It can also help a person feel supported, as in someone read my post even if they didn't reply. And in an industry where we constantly bring up how isolated many farmers feel, sometimes just knowing someone read your post can be a big comfort. Even if nobody has anything to really reply with, it lets someone know they aren't being ignored. Reply With Quote

    Don't know how it works for anyone else but I've personally never bought, or been persuaded to buy anything I've ever seen advertised on any form of social media. Reply With Quote

    Which is why it is so effective. You don't even know you are, but oh that hit of dopamine when someone clicks like or if you do. The best reward molecule ever.

    Farmers are some of the easiest to market to, there is such a huge machine pulling you along. As companies accumulate more and more of the data we're paying to give them, pricing and marketing will become a precision machine as well as huge. Analytics teams are huge business and getting better at grouping farmers into categories and marketing accordingly.

    But sure, keep telling yourself you're unaffected. Reply With Quote
    Feb 8, 2019 | 07:46 15 Oh I understand and believe in the dopamine hit from the like button.
    Social media advertising just doesn't influence my purchases - ever. As I type this I see there are 3 ads on the page - CaseIH, Dekalb and Mosaic. I'm not interested in any of their products. Reply With Quote

    And so you should - but thankfully it isn't. Same story applies though - don't buy stuff I see advertised, I buy stuff I need. I know what I need. Reply With Quote

    Interesting comment.

    Was a objector to all social media until travvelled to europe a while back good way to keep in contact with folks at home and next people to visist.

    Other than that i had little use but it grew on me to a degree.

    Only been on twitter for about ayear find that better and can narrow your group.

    But go off both for weeks no withdrawl symptoms but i find myself checking aville every morning whilst i knock back a coffee or 3.

    what ever tickles your tickler i guess Reply With Quote
