Comment liking FAQ

It's time to like out loud! Show your fellow readers your appreciation by liking their comments.

Will I be notified when someone likes my comment?

No, there are no notifications for comment likes at this time. If another Wattpadder likes your comment, you won’t get a notification in the feed, in your email, or on your device just yet. 

Do comments with higher likes move to the top?

No, comment likes do not change the order of comments at this time. Comments are still ordered based on when they were posted.

Will anyone be able to see who liked a comment or do likes remain anonymous in the comment section?

At this time, all likes will be anonymous. 

I liked a comment by accident, how do I 'unlike' it?

Tap the heart again to unlike the comment. When the heart becomes transparent again, your like has been removed. 

If the comments on my story are getting more likes, will my story be ranked higher?

No – currently, the algorithm that calculates story rankings does not factor in the number of comment likes on a story. For more details on how rankings are determined, see the Story Rankings FAQ.
