Like and Thanks feedback icons unskillful

Recommended Posts

They are confusing choices.

"Like" has a symbol of love.

"Thanks" implies it was somehow of benefit even if it might have been unpleasant, but it has a trophy symbol, which is usually associated with indicating a high level of excellence, basically "wow, that was amazing".

 

I don't know which one to use when, in part due to the ambiguity perceived on my part and in part due to the awareness of the ambiguity on the other side, or ignorance of it.

 

Perfect setup for miscommunication, albeit probably of little consequence.

I find online communication to be inherently misleading and ambiguous, these icons are no exception. Some take extra care to make their intention clear, others the opposite.

And others deliberately misinterpret when responding in order to troll those whom they're responding to, if we go by some historical bans in this forum.
