How to Tell Who Liked Your Message on GroupMe
GroupMe is Microsoft’s social networking app, and one that’s has been steadily growing in popularity over the years. It has a lot of competition, but it also has something that other apps do not.
While most texting apps have the option to create groups, GroupMe takes it to another level. This is the best app for group chats where you can like the messages of your friends and receive likes, too.
When you say something funny, you might get many likes quickly. So, is there a way to see who liked your joke? The answer is yes, and in this article we’ll tell you how.
Like Notifications in GroupMe
GroupMe is widely used among teenagers and young adults. And one of the reasons why is because the communication moves along quickly in groups.
And these groups can split into smaller groups when necessary. And not every message requires a text reply. We all know this. But GroupMe users still get the chance to express that they approve of something you’ve said in the group.
Hence the “Like” feature. Similar to other social networking apps, you like something by tapping on a little heart symbol next to the message. You’re also able to see the number of likes the message already has.
When you tap or click the heart icon, it will go from transparent to red, and the person whose message you liked will get a notification.
That notification will be specific, and it will say that you, in particular, liked the message. And unless you’ve adjusted or disabled your notifications, you’ll receive the same information when someone likes your message in GroupMe.
Reviewing Your Likes in GroupMe
But what happens when you receive too many likes for one message in a brief period? You’ll probably miss some people who liked it.
But that’s okay, because you can still see who the people in your group who approve of what you said. All you really need to do is select the message and select from the menu to see the list of people who liked it.
You might wonder how GroupMe chooses to list people, meaning, was the person at the top the first or the most recent to like your message.
While there’s no proof or confirmation from GroupMe about what pattern they use, it seems very likely that they do it that way, from first to the last person to like. Even when someone leaves the group chat and then comes back, the order stays the same.
Managing Notifications in GroupMe
If you’re a part of GroupMe’s numerous groups, and the groups have many members, your phone is probably ringing and buzzing all the time. That can be frustrating, especially when you consider the fact that GroupMe notifies you of everything that happens.
For example, GroupMe won’t just notify you when someone likes your message, but it will notify you whenever someone changes their profile picture or when a person joins or leaves the group.
The only real option you have is to use the “Mute” feature. You can use it to mute a single group or all the groups. Unfortunately, you can’t pick and choose which notification you want on and which you want off.
And everything you do in a GroupMe group will be noted, and other group members will be notified unless they’ve muted the group too.
How Do You Know Someone Read Your Message in GroupMe?
When someone likes your message in GroupMe or replies to it, it’s safe to say that they’ve read it. But when the reaction is missing, you might start to wonder if everyone has even read your message.
And while “Read” and “Seen” options exist in many chat-based apps, in GroupMe, that’s not the case. At least not in groups. However, you will be able to see if the person you’ve directly messaged has received and read your message.
Keeping Track with the Likes in GroupMe
The moment a GroupMe group becomes too big, managing who reads what and responds becomes challenging. Tapping those tiny hearts and liking messages is a fast-paced way to let someone know you’ve seen what they’ve said.
It’s also a convenient tool to use when you don’t have anything to add. And if you’re the recipient of likes in GroupMe, don’t worry, you’ll be notified when each like happens, and you’ll be able to go back and check them whenever you want.
