A like is a form of engagement on social media. It’s a quick way of showing that you—literally—like the content posted by simply clicking a button.

On Facebook, the like button is a thumbs-up, while on Instagram and Twitter, a like is indicated by a heart. Liking content also works like bookmarking, since you can go back later to view the content you have liked.
