How can I let people that I follow that I like what they post or share? I feel like the favourite button is more of a toot bookmark.
There is a bookmark feature if you want that. I'd say most Tooters use the favorite as if it were a like button. And if you really like it and want to share it boost or just use boost to help spread the word.
@hund lol yeah I guess... I'm more used to a minimal interaction, like clicking a button and incrementing a likes counter. I just have to get used to this
