Like functionality

Like functionality is very slow. Try clicking on like button on https://www.joindiaspora.com/stream ... try clicking again n again you'll come to know what i wanted to say.

This isn't really a matter of policy or community governance, which is what Loomio is for. If you think this is a bug and others have confirmed it, Github is the place. However, if you're on joindiaspora.com, it's probably a problem with the performance of that notoriously poor-performing pod rather than a bug in Diaspora's core code, so there's no point reporting it in Github. You just need to move to a better pod!

See https://wiki.diasporafoundation.org/How_to_report_a_bug for the future.

Are you trying to report a bug?

I don't have an account on JD so I can't click 'Like'.

Is this not a performance issue with either the server response and/or the client browser performance?

I notice no lag or delay what so ever on the DG2 pod when clicking 'Like'.

@rich1 (Are you trying to report a bug?) no im not, i was reading about new features on ( https://www.loomio.org/g/EseV9p4X/diaspora-community ) so i thought first to improve the functionality which already exists and then move on to new features..

Liking on Geraspora is somewhat sluggish, too …

So maybe, big pods are affected?

First, I discovered an old discussion about liking comments here, today.

Second, @jasonrobinson shared a post on diaspora* today, which was written by @rasmusfuhse …

Notable, this opinion:

At the end is the experience: blubber is not a marketing-driven network that wants to make money and create like-statistics to get marketing profiles it can sell to customers. Blubber only wants to be a tool for communication and collaboration and doesn’t need likes. Blubber is not facebook. So I simply left it away.

I think, we should consider this here, too. Blubber was the social network written by Rasmus.

I don't think we can take the likes away from the diaspora-users. For a collaborative network likes are useless, but for a #catcontent-network (and yeah, diaspora is that) likes are necessary to the users.

But to be egoistic: I wouldn't mind if someone erases the like-feature. Was that your intention, Ryuno-Ki?

I don’t think we can take the likes away from the diaspora-users.

You're probably right, but I wish we could... I hate them. And I agree with you that they are for marketing/advertising/revenue generation/page ranking, none of which diaspora does, and are useless for actual communication. It's another thing in which I wish diaspora would 'dare to be different', but it seems there's a fear of upsetting users, who naturally expect what they know in Facebook/Twitter to be present in another network.

i really like how (https://github.com/discourse/discourse) is doing things. Diaspora need client side framework to speed things up.


Jason Robinson Sat 1 Mar 2014 2:04PM

Don't take my likes away :( I'd love comment likes to come back too :)

@rasmusfuhse My intention was, to start a discussion (maybe fired up by the podmins on diaspora*?) about why users want to "like" posts (and comments).

Maybe it's simply a lack of awareness of these marketing background. And after all, Piwik was removed due to a similar reason.
