What happens when I “Like" a Tip? Does anyone besides me see it?

Below each Tip, there’s a smiley face icon and the word “Like” which I can tap if like any given tip.

If a Liked a Tip, who else besides me sees that I have Liked it?

Further, I don’t see anywhere where it shows the total number of people who Liked the Tip shown, so it doesn’t seem to be there for purposes of showing the user how many people liked a Tip.

It's probably just to track what tips people like so they will, possibly, produce more & similar tips. ???
But who really sees that you liked it?
Big Brother of course!! They/He is ALWAYS watching ;)

I was suspicious that would be it. So it’s basically useless for the user. Maybe there’s some small print somewhere about privacy policy where it explicitly states what they’re doing with our Likes.

All those tips are on a website, too—over there, instead of “Like”, they have a "Helpful / Not Helpful" line where you can provide feedback.

I never use the Tip app. There's never anything there I don't already know. So I keep it in my "unused" folder with stocks and other apps I'd like to delete.

At the bottom of a post that has been "Liked" or something else of that nature, to the right of the like is the word "List" tap on it and a list of those who have agreed with that post or thought it was helpful, funny etc. will be shown.
Where are you looking?
