Sometimes you want to indicate you appreciate or agree with what someone said, without having to go to the trouble of posting a comment. The ability to "like" a comment in Basecamp has been a popular feature request for years. It's finally here with Basecamp 3: Applause!

Applause interface

You'll see all the participants who have applauded the post underneath it, as well as the opportunity to clap yourself (click on the Applaud link):

Example comment with applause

The person you applaud will receive a notification chock-full of warm fuzzies in their Hey! stack. (Email notifications will be bundled every few hours in this case.)

Open Hey! menu with arrow pointing to 'You've got applause!' notification

Click through to see who applauded what. You’ve got so many fans!
