So, ello doesn't really provide a "hey, I saw this post and I like/agree/sympathize/etc it, but I don't feel like making an actual comment" button... and the views counter increases with every page load, including your own views. This contributes to a feeling of isolation. ("No one liked my post, did anyone actually see? Have I really refresh the page that many times or are people seeing it and not commenting?") add to that the fact that ello is still in beta, and not very populated and I'm left wondering why I signed on and what the point is.
