These are 'intellicons'. States that can be used to indicate how your intelligence is reacting to news and information.

We've had emoticons that indicate emotional reaction to news and information, which comes with its own ambiguities of whether to like or dislike "1000's of children are suffering" when the first few comments are thanks for bringing the issue to public attention.

This isn't that. These are state buttons for how much effort is going into the processing of the information. (I'd like to say internalising but I'm not sure if this is some cheaper US form of understanding.) Ok, moving swiftly on to the definitions -

Enjoy - In one ear and out the other, a little bit uplifting but its not gonna stick.

Info - Worth knowing, it might hang around a bit in my brain.

Think - More than just accepted information, I actually started to ramify this morsel with unscheduled mulling to corroberate its truth and fallout.

Reconstruct - The full-on sleepless week of ramification, addiction feeding and quest persuit at all other costs to deconstruct the meaning in minutest detail and reconstruct a reality which still makes sense.

I'd really like these ratings on content as I have very little interest in what is popular for the sake of being popular. Ok, let me rephrase that, I have some interest in what is popular for the sake of being popular inside a very small peer group.

That's it. As you were. You can now return to enjoying cat videos, thinking about trump or reconstructing and projecting the future for humanity.

[edit: It would make fake news filtering a bit easier.]

       "We here in Great State of Texas would like to welcome the new states of: Enjoy, Info, Think, and Reconstruct. That makes 54 states. Yea! Haw!"   

       "Get Betsy Ross to design a New 54 star Flag. Dead you say. Gosh Darn sorry to hear that. Maybe Mama and her Singer machine can Whip somthin up. Get Mama on the phone."

       well, I have seen intellicons like "informative", "well researched" or "needs references" at longecity.com   

       the thing is to make the intellicons searchable at search engine so you can find things with a plurality of [informative][informative] [infomative][well researched] at them   

       This kind reminds me of having a search engine measure the grammatic fluency of a page, as well as how many syllables the words are, then having a way to specify these at the search engine.

       [bigsleep] Don't you have to filter hooks by your personal emoticons before the intellicon ratings or will you absorb a hated subject with a Reconstruct ?

       Now that would make for a good idea.

       Also, you tricked me with that [beanangel]-esque identical summary and first paragraph.
