Hearts on Twitter? No, stay unique…

The tide has turned from Facebook copying Twitter towards the other way around. Today, we have hearts or “likes” on Twitter instead of favourites.
This is a shame because it is one of the reasons I liked Twitter. With the fast timeline it is prudent to bookmark stuff that concerns the user. Now you have to “like” the tweet. Maybe Twitter should have both like and favourite buttons? With Twitter we are losing the facility to save noteworthy, but not necessarily liked, material. Ideapod is different because it is relevant to like, comment and connect ideas and this works extremely well.
Whatever Ideapod does, it is important the platform stays unique and not get tangled up with the mainstream social media popularity contest that has become mostly a business model rather than a place to locate new information.
