The idea behind it.
The developers made this to provide a simple solution to the ‘comment vs like-button’ argument. It’s a feedback system that lies somewhat in between the comment and like system where users or readers get to use emotions instead.
What Bob likes
Bob likes the fact that it supports almost all blogging platforms (WordPress, Tumblr, Blogger, Drupal etc.). Also, it has a browser extension for Chrome and Internet Explorer.
What it doesn’t have or doesn’t do
Bob thinks that adding an optional branching feature would be beneficial. Let’s say, a respondent chose the “happy” emoji, for example, she or he could be presented with an option to comment or send a private message to the blogger as to why she or he is happy about it.
