    "...acknowledge the other person/conversation when said conversation is coming to a close. Like a I have nothing left to add here but I want you to know I saw this and I feel like it’s a natural human reaction like nodding or smiling at somebody..."

This is the meat of it, isn't it?

There are two distinct needs, it seems:

1. Acknowledge the good conversation/point,

2. Bring others into the discussion.

These two functions are being conflated into a single device, rather than separate actions.
