Replace "like" with "heart" for recommending images?

0 votes


We've been working on improvements to the way we handle images on profiles. The big improvement will be a slideshow interface.

One cosmetic thing: It's been suggested that the "I like this" icon and phrasing for recommending images isn't ideal. Too much like Facebook. This is the one I mean: 

I've heard that Instagram calls it "hearting" instead of "liking". If we wanted to copy this, we could use a heart instead of a thumbs-up icon for when you want to say you like a photo. Would this be better? Does anyone care?

I like a wedge of cheese for an icon, because photos make me smile.

In seriousness, the thumb is a bit Facebook-y, but it doesn't fuss me either way. Maybe a white camera silhouette with a heart cut-out in the center instead of a lens, and a caption like "Love it!" would strike a balance of not being too Facebookesque or Instagramish.
