Quick comment option

Quick comment option

Short, concise description of the idea
Instead of writing a specific comment to a post in an LJ, one should have the option of a quick automated post such as "Liked this."

Full description of the idea
I dislike the current trend away from LJ towards Tumblr, which is fine for posting lots of pics, but unsuitable for a journal. However, there is one feature that is good. I'm not a Tumblr member myself so I don't know exactly how it works, but rather than specific comments, people add a "Liked this" comment to posts.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Adding an automated "Liked this" comment option will mean that more people will comment on LJ entries. Often people don't have much to say but simply want to acknowledge that they've read the entry. More comments will be encouraging to LJ posters.
