Received 'likes'

Does anyone else have this issue or can explain what is the problem?

I don’t receive notification for all likes received on a post - usually just the first ‘like’ and no more, though sometimes I might get notified of the third (but not the second like) or even just the fourth/fifth ‘like’ but not the 2nd/3rd ‘like’?


Maybe if two likes occur in close temporal proximity to one another the notification is silenced.

Or maybe no one is liking your stuff, yo.


that’s a possibility. Though it also happens when likes are given say within a time period of 1 hour. Received notification of the first like, but no notification for either the second or third like. :woman_shrugging:


I’m just gonna keep liking my man’s posts until it stops notifying him. We will resolve this problem. IT or no IT.

First like of the “day” for that post gets notified. Often, second day ditto… first like of that “day”. After that, the algorithm the like notification gets more obscure. A day seems to start at 8PM, my time. (Pacific standard).

There might be a running 24 hour period involved, but I haven’t seen that.


:rofl: :joy: :crazy_face: … sweet!

Well now, that makes sense!

Though “After that, the algorithm for the like notification gets more obscure.” - is where the problem lies!

Then there’s step three (a miracle occurs), which has me stumped.:smirk:


I shut off the Likes notification ages ago. It was just too much of a distraction.

Do I get that many Likes?


Just kidding! :smile:


I was perusing an old thread from this past fall and noticed a post with 5 likes, including likes from two members that really surprised me. I staggered slowly through my Notifications list, and could find only the first one.

Go to your profile page, click on preferences and then click on notifications.

There is a box called ‘Notify when liked’, you can choose Always, First Time etc.



Thank you! I learned several bits of info when I followed your instructions.

I always learn something new here each day, but I hit the jackpot with oodles and gobs of new info during the past 3 hours from you & @CRV! :innocent:
