The image below is what I see. "Like" button lower right. You might not see it until you have 10 posts.

The last of the 4 buttons on the bottom right of each post. Don't feel bad. It took me years to notice it.

And let's not forget smartphone users like myself who see it this way: bottom left corner since you don't say which device you are using

Agree with above. There are some features (like posting pictures or sending private messages) that require 10 posts. I honestly don’t know if the like button is similar. Maybe you can update posting to let us know if you see it?

I'm pretty sure that noob's have to wait a time before they get the like button to show. Might be the same 10 posts requirement that they have for adding links and embedding photos.

I donít know the exact timeframe but pretty sure it was added on as a feature about 6 +/- years ago. Can anyone confirm??

Hello all I can confirm that for some reason shortly after making this post the 'like' button did appear in the bottom right corner of my screen. This was i think my 4th or 5th post, but i still don't have 10 posts. So the mystery continues as to way but your screen shots were quite helpful !
