Please Let us Like & Heart our Own Posts?

The community would benefit from being able to like or heart our own posts! Not being able to like our own post is like saying a potential president can't vote for their self or an author can't like their own work, which is censorship!  Being able to like our own work shows freedom of speech!  Not being able to like our own posts is censorship!


Being able to like our own work is empowerment for every community, & liking your own post is liking yourself,  liking what you stand for, which is really important for voices, & freedom of expression, freedom of speech!  


I also think we could have a bunch of emoji, which is a funner way to communicate & freely express under the liking!   🤡🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♂️

We need more information

Thanks for sharing your ideas, @TeresaRichardson.


This idea contains more than one feature request. Please take a look at the How do I use the Idea Exchange? to see the guidelines for submitting an idea. 


That said, please share some more details about the liking your own posts topic. How, in your opinion, a reader seeing you like your own post would reflect on them?


About the emoji topic, you are free to use as many emojis as you feel you need. 🙈🙊🙉



Here is additional context & details for liking our own post, & other peoples posts in this community with a variety of custom emojis!  It will reflect emotions for how the author, contributor is feeling at the time they are liking a post. One person might see a post as funny, where someone else might find the post confusing. So the like is an additional emoji type expression adding more context & expression & they are fun too.  :)
