I'm very new here. Could you explain how the hub wheel is different than the upvotes on Reddit? It took me a while to figure out that the dots in the wheel represented people 'liking' the post, which is essentially what happens at Reddit, no?

At first, I thought it had to do with people 'sharing' which meant that they were adding it to their follower's feed. If that was happening, it would seem redundant since the most popular people were getting 'shared' a lot, but those people would already be on everyone else's feed. It also confused me because the comments also had these hub wheels, so it didn't really make sense to me that a single comment would be shared but not the entire post.
