    • On most platforms, you graze like a gazelle on the African veldt. Read, scroll, scroll, scroll, read, scroll ... you get the idea. There are users who are content-creators, and then there’s the 99% who enjoy reading their content. It’s a symbiotic relationship: creators need an audience in order to merit creating. An occasional like (👍🙌🙂 🎂) can be like throwing a seal a fish. “25 likes and 10 retweets, Oh my!”

      Cake is different.

      Most creators on Cake are indifferent to likes—they’re nice but at best a cherry on top.

      What creators want is conversation.

      • Why did you like it?

      • Do you have expertise on the topic you can share?

      • Do you disagree with the creator’s conclusions?

      Comments and replies are always welcome and encouraged for conversations on Cake.
