The "heart" of social networking
Layk (like) is a tool that helps the Internet user to Express its appreciation to the posted content in social networks and other Internet resources.
The main advantage of this tool is easy to use. Just "like" the entry, e.g. pressing a special button of approval, and your opinion will be taken into account. Any emails and additional comments.
This mechanism is so simple that appearing in the social network, he quickly "took over" many Internet resources, including official sites known to the media and well-known projects: Google+, Youtube, Mail and more. Of course, these systems develop their own buttons for likes.
If the site does not claim to be a global network, as listed above, for the evaluation of the material buttons of the famous social networks (most Vkontakte and Facebook). This happens due to the installation of the official widget on the resource.
The number of likes is often said about the popularity of the material and the user who posts the material.
The huskies recently have a large influence on the choice of users. For example, to promote the group "Vkontakte" need to have a large number of likes and preferably posts under posts in the community.
The hype about "heart under the ava" has reached such an extent that many users of social networks, not related to promotion groups, install on the computer various programs. These utilities allow you to automatically cheat number of likes.
But these programs are not officially available social networks, so decided to use them, you can become a victim of fraud. Within the networking groups are created where there is "a mutual exchange of hearts, this "artificial cuts" is much safer.
Huskies often are used as assessments in the various polls. He who gets the most "hearts", becomes the winner.
In General, the number of likes does not affect the promotion of the site in terms of seo and puts it on the top position of the ranking those users who have higher "kid" popularity in social networks.
Where did the idea of Laika
The idea for Laika was born in 1998 and was implemented in the social network Surfbook programmer van der Meer. He filed a patent on the invention.
Since 2010, this button has appeared in Facebook (thumb raised up), and later in Vkontakte (in the form of a heart). The latest social network went a little further by applying along with a "like" button option "share with friends", which in a single click adds the news to the personal page of the user (this is called a repost).
