I rolled out a Like/Dislike feature onto my forum www.amtraktrainz.co.cc and it is neither abused nor neglected. I mainly put it on for people to like screenshots & pics. However I have noticed it being used in areas where a regular user cannot port but can read (such as the announcements area). It was also implemented as a somewhat coding trial for myself (the admin) as I was planning on incorporating it into the download section, but that didn't work as planned.
As a person who posts a fair bit of screenshots over there I like it because it gives me a sense that people have actually seen my pictures and think their good, as I sometimes get the feeling that no one is paying any attention to me.
However I have noticed that most "older" railfans (idk, 30+ maybe 35+) tend to dislike anything that bears any resemblance to facebook.
