A purpose to liking?

As I new member to the new Mylot I am just wondering if there is a reason behind liking comments and discussions? Is it just a niceness to like something or earning potential behind it? Just curious I tried to find it out looking through discussions but didn't really see anything. Also checked mylot and only really has a bunch of do not dos on it. So is it an earning thing or a courtesy thing?

It is in the FAQ section. A 'like' is a way of otherwise showing interest in something written, and we get paid when people do that.
This is where you will learn all about the myLot Earnings Program

I read the FAQ when I signed up as well as before I posed my question and again just now, and as far as I can see it does not specifically mention liking comments or post, Thank you for your clarification as I was unsure if that was part of showing interest or if it was just something that people did just because.

@miesse2 If you stop and think, there is no other way you could show interest, so it has to be by liking

I see it as a way for people to let someone know you read and liked the post or response, and maybe you can't comment on it for what ever reason. So liking is a good way to go, so see something you like or agree with hit thumbs up.

I know when I am reading a discussion, and I like what someone has said in a comment. I always like there comment because I know that in the future someone will like my comment to. I never thought of it as a way of earning though, just a way of showing appreciation.

Perhaps it just depends on the person "liking". I do it sometimes to acknowledge it without having to comment all the time. Especially, in facebook groups for accountability reasons, liking is a way to check off a task or something. And ofcourse people just do it because they agree or actually like it.

I was more questioning about mylot in particular, not other social media, but thank you.

I like anything that I can't come up with a good comment for. The only time I don't like something is when it is in violation of the rules. When I browse through the comments others have made in a discussion I will like them or often add to the conversation. It keeps it lively.

I do it to let the discussion/response/comment's posters know and if they earn from what I do then it's even better...

Well you can by the ready likes if its a nonsense comment or post being liked then i guess its for earning purposes only. While for those who really got impressed by the post i guess it deserve a like

I have thought about this, and if it really makes us money or not.

In a sense we get paid for interacting which includes liking, etc.
