We need more than just a kudos button. I want to roll my eyes, shake my head, headdesk, shrug, and ^^THIS posts. 

 

Tell those engineers to give me some emojis. The workers demand emojis.

Hi Amanda, 

I appreciate your suggestion, and will let Lena and the rest of the team know that you would like these features to be available in the Community. 

I will move your thread to the Coffee Break board which I hope you don't mind.

Totally agree! End the emoji-free zone!

I'm sure I represent a minority (maybe a minority of one!) but I feel like more than enough of my interactions with others occur in contexts and using media that discourage us from using our words. Personally, I think it's contributing to the ongoing breakdown of social discourse online and in "real life." More and more people are less and less inclined to invest the time and energy it takes to articulate what they're thinking. Emojis are just too quick and too cool.

 

In addition to learning things about how the platform works and sharing experiences and insights with other professionals, I've found an authentic community in this forum. I am afraid the experience would be less rich if people could participate by simply popping emojis instead of having to write their thoughts.

I wish I could, but I really couldn't have put this better. Ironically Phyllis, I've given kudos to the post, because the feature is 'there', I'd rather it wasn't at all, because at least then people will have to make 'an effort' to (hopefully, constructively) articulate their response to a post. 

 

The last thing the forum needs is a feature which makes it easier to spread negativity.
