  • Think of WordPress.com as a huge multi-site network allowing WordPress.org self-hosted sites to access some of its features.

    leejosepho,

    Ok, and???

    That is why “the Jetpack Like button requires [a login connection to] to WordPress.com”.

    I have just realized you might not know Jetpack is an integral component having an automatic login connection at WordPress.com sites where self-hosted WordPress.org sites can install and use other plugins (and WordPress.com users cannot).

    Yes, this is exactly the case.
    I’m self hosted.

    Yes, I understand. I just had not been thorough in my previous explanations.

    Udi — it requires people to log in, so it can track whether they’ve previously liked the content, to prevent like-spam and let folks track their liked articles.
