Why do we feel the need to upvote or downvote someone?
I know its just to say 'you agree or disagree' but why the need to let them know that?
I know we've all done it myself included... but maybe im more looking for the psychology behind why we feel the need to do it?
What do you think?

If someone gives a good opinion, you give them an up vote to encourage them to keep on thinking that way.
On the other end of things. Maybe somebody has a shitty opinion on things, but they just don't realize it. They may look at their opinion and its numerous down votes and be all like, "Hmm, a lot of people really hate what I said. Maybe I'm looking at this wrong? Maybe I'm just an asshole?"3
