Update:
As WRAPPEDinBACON pointed out, we're already adding Facebook likes to posts (post only, they do not count towards your total points).

We still haven't decided if we should add these point's to user's total point count. Post your opinion.

Here's a list of top posts since the update to give an idea of how it would affect the rankings:
http://www.sharenator.com/all/alltime/
--------------------------------------------------------

Original message:

We've been discussing a possibility of counting Facebook likes as points on Sharenator. Sharenator points and FB likes would be summed up - for example, if a post has 100 points on Sharenator and 50 likes on Facebook, 50 points would be added to the post, which would make it 150 points total.

Good posts would get more points than ever before. In some occasions we would see posts with hundreds or thousands of points. Here are some of the most liked posts I could find:

Best XXX Ever - 4,233 likes
Yahoo Answers at their best - 2,059 likes
All the world loved Swastika before WWII - 1,594 likes
World's strangest looking animals - 810 likes
FFFFFUUUUUUUUU - 722 likes
Edit: Note these are the TOP posts, other posts get on average 2 likes per post. Also, a large like count doesn't happen overnight. I'll post a longer list of top posts once I come back home.

Thoughts?

    I dunno, I like the overall concept, but I can't help but feel that it could lead to potential abuses.

    Perhaps if there was some sort of limitation to it. Examples:

    1) Only a percentage of the total likes would be translated into points.

    2) A post would have to pass a certain milestone on sharenator before earning any points from facebook (a post that only got 10 points wouldn't get any from facebook even if it got 10,000 likes).

    3) Like #2, but the milestone is on facebook (a post wouldn't get points from facebook untill it got past a certain number of likes, regardless of how many points it already has on sharenator).

    4) Any combination of 1,2 or 3.

    Just something to keep it from changing the overall economy of the site. I know points aren't everthing, but I know that if something has only been posted a couple hours ago and already has a hundred points, it's definitely worth checking out.

    I'll be honest I'm against it because it'd be really annoying from posts going from hundreds to thousands. Maybe instead of counting them as sharenator points you guys could just make it so it shows how many likes the post gets of fb along with having the sharenator points, n just make it more for prestiege then for points going towards a person. Just my thougts.

    I think that's a brilliant idea, it would make the points of a post ridiculously high in some cases, but what about if they 'dislike' the post? There is only 'like' on Facebook.

    And what happens if someone gets all their mates to 'like' a post for more points?

      It'd be kind of a drastic change, but it will certainly make the community grow even larger. I'm really tired of seeing all the new people who join only posting a simple question without any actual content.

        Honestly, we don't see how it would actually make the community larger. If Likes are counted as Points, it's the same amount of people who liked the post (According to facebook) But didn't make accounts to comment on it anyway. All it's doing as far as we can tell is adding more points.

    [offtopic] I would also like to ask for an addition to the report feature. Not every mod knows why some things are reported, so it would be a great benefit to allow people to tell the mods WHY they are reporting something rather than trying to scour through the thread looking for any comments about the post they reported.

        that and make it so we don't have to go to the actual page to delete them. It's fine when there's only one or two posts but when there are like thirty at a time it becomes more time consuming and a nuisance especially when its an obvious spammer.

    i think that there should just be more points that you can give people on here. mainly cause facebook doesn't a system that stops someone from lieking everything they see. well it would eventully cause people to uprate them selfs a lot and none can do anything about it

      Actually, we can stop that. We can't stop people from going on like-everything spree, but we can track down abusers (facebook lets developers track likes in real time) by their IP addresses and simply remove their likes from total point count. Also, there's a social factor on Facebook - you can't go on liking everything, that would make you a very annoying friend on Facebook. Of course, someone can create a bunch of fake accounts on Facebook, but that wouldn't work because we would still be able to limit votes on per-IP basis.

              Most Historical troll on this site.

    wow, I had no idea that post were getting that many "likes" on facebook.
    Over 4,000 likes for a post?! That's more likes than the entire site has!

    But I do kinda agree with BobTheJanitor, it could lead to a drastic change in the economy of the site of one post suddenly jumps from say, 85 points to 4,085.
    Add some sort of "milestones" like Bob was talking about to try and even it out.

    This seems like it could work. For the sake of not self commercializing I guess you guys should make it so that we can't like our own posts. I don't really know how to stop that so I have no idea how that would happen. Maybe we could connect our facebook profile to our sharenator profile & that would also help people contact us easier or find us faster if they wanna add us on facebook.

    i think the facebook point idea isnt that smart. than everyone on sharenator will just sharing their posts with facebook. the site would grow exponentially along with peoples point values skyrocketing. one post could get you from rank 100 to under 25. i think the concept is cool but when it comes down to the actual effects of it the site would change a lot

      actually idk about ^^ my earlier comment. this is an interesting concept. but than people would be able to uprate a picture twice. the idea is definitely do-able. but as people above have said, the point value you get from a like has to be balanced. and the whole idea regulated properly or things might get outta hand

        What if instead of points, there is a seperate category for the number of likes? It doesnt count towards points, think of it as a little badge or area on the persons profile that lists how many people liked his post?
