When I like what someone writes, I heart the post. I learned, that this takes care, otherwise a red (sore) thumb will be shown. The thumbs up seems more adjusted to voting, i.e. the QA forum. Now it is default everywhere? Can this made distinct again?
Personal opinion, I prefer the thumbs up as default reaction, because it’s what most people know from social media as default “like” button. Heart reaction means “I really like it/I love it”, which is “like” in steroids. Personal opinion.
You can still posts, it’s just not the standard reaction anymore.
Yes, that change was discussed and agreed here
Old hearts still count for the “like” count.
