Can someone explain the heart, unicorn and tab icons at the bottom of each post?

I’m assuming they’re different reactions/ways of saving a post but I can’t find any documentation on it?

Ah yes, hearts are likes. Unicorns are basically super-likes. And the bookmark icon saves the article into your reading list so you can go back to it later.

  • The heart gives the article a "like"
  • The bookmark saves the article your reading list.

    Unicorns typically represent an especially positive connotation in our industry. Unicorn devs, unicorn companies, it’s the things that are wonderful.

    Emoji reactions are always a bit abstract and I made no effort to dictate the purposes.

    One thing to note: I’d like to have a longer list of reaction types you can choose from like in Slack, just haven’t gotten around to building that out, or even describing it to others.
