Rating, liking, and marking content

You can rate, like, and mark content, so others know it's useful.

Good content deserves attention. You can help improve the popularity of a blog post, discussion, document, or another content by rating and liking it. Popularity determines whether a piece of content is promoted in certain content tiles; for example, the Popular Content and Answered Questions tiles. The more people who view, like, and award 3- to 5-star ratings to a piece of content, the more popular it becomes.

Marking content helps others quickly see what has been decided, marked for action, or was a success.

Note: You may not see all of these options depending on how your community manager has set up your community. For more information, see Using Marking feature.
