Quickstart Guide: Liking and Rating Content

Version 1

    Liking and Rating Content

     

    The liking and rating features give people in your community the opportunity to provide feedback on content or comments, which adds to their popularity. Liked and highly rated content shows up in the popular content widgets and helps that content become more visible to others.

     

    1. To Like content, click the Like link in the box to the right of the content or below a comment on a piece of content. The number of Likes that content has received shows up in parenthesis next to the Like link. Clicking the number of Likes will show you who else in your community likes that content, too.
    2. Rating content uses a 5-star rating system. Rating content 3 to 5 stars will increase that content’s popularity in search results and in the Recommender. To rate a blog, document discussion, or poll, click one of the My Rating stars in the lower left corner of a piece of content. The Average User Rating shows up to the left of the My Rating stars.

     

    Note: Liking is enabled by default for all content types. Rating is enabled by default for documents, but can be enabled for other content types, too.
