The Summify thumbs-down “Dislike” button has now changed to a thumbs-up “Like” button. The original addition of the Dislike button made perfect sense from an engineering point of view. Our thinking was that the dislikes would be a nice complement to the positive signals sent to us every time you clicked a story, and together we would use these signals to improve your recommendations. In practice however, the dislike button has not proved popular, and so we have decided to swap it for a new thumbs up Like button; a turn that frown upside down kind of thing.
The new Like button is a strong positive signal for your Summary’s recipe and has another direct benefit to you: when you click it, you “Like” the link on Facebook as well. Give it a try; you can find the Like button on your web summary and the share bar:
Web Summary – hover your mouse on the headline for it to appear
Share Bar – at the top of your screen, beside the share button when you view a story
