What does like mean?
Ron Mader: Twitter's search engine sucks, so I like posts to return to them. On Twitter, my likes --
-- are a mix of posts I want to curate on Storify or Flipboard. Some I know I will come back to if I can only find the tweet. There are some fantastic photos and posters, which if I like them (and in this case I really, really do), I can easily recommend them to other via curation. Again, check out Flipboard for my favorite bits of Australia, Mexico and the intangibles like the social web.

A friend writes:
I can't really comment publicly on what I like or dislike, as everything is public now, and you never know if a company will knock you down a notch if a critique comes to their attention.
