Likes to photographs

As you may have seen there is now an option to like somebody's photograph. What is currently not possible is to see who applied the like. Would users be happy to know the identity? In that case a new feature will be developed by IT. If not we leave it as it is.

I often wonder who likes my photos so it would be a yes from me, though I can see some will not care.

I would also like to know who liked whose photo. So "yes" from me.

Fleetmon identify the likes and I find it interesting. It may encourage greater usage of the likes option, I must admit I have tended to overlook it.
I would support this option.

I often wondered about this, I think it is a very good idea.

I have noticed on some other sites it can lead to "if you like my photo then I will like yours" but in general I think it's ok and thus fine with me.   8)

I agree with MattB.  Not for me but I don't feel strongly about it.

This is actually a good point, in the past it was rather irritating when this was done with comments to each others photographs, especially when the comment was restricted to single syllable replies like "wow".  It created a group of members that mutually made comments and thereby created much more views to the shots than these would actually have deserved on their own merits. Likes in the current systems seem to hardly influence the number of hits.

The alternative would be to opt out of the possibility to receive, or even to give likes but perhaps it does not have go this far.
