Why? ··········· –  Pëkka Sep 15 '11 at 18:26
its just a request....i would just like it...for e.g. sometimes people deliberately put witty comments and would like to know how people respond to it! –  Suraj Chandran Sep 15 '11 at 18:31
The sites aren't here to float egos. –  squillman Sep 15 '11 at 18:49
It's an upvote. An upvote. –  lunboks Sep 15 '11 at 18:55

You can already see your comment score distribution and a list of comments sorted by score on the Stack Exchange Data Explorer. However, because Stack Overflow is a Q&A site and explicitly not a social network, I think that real-time notifications would go against Stack Overflow's raison d'être.

I already know about the data explorer thing, but having it real time or maybe end-of-day notification of all such miscellanous stuff would be wonderfull...Ever thought why facebook is so successful...its because of the "Like" feature in comments. –  Suraj Chandran Sep 15 '11 at 18:36
SE has a COMPLETELY different purpose than Facebook. And if you think that "Liking" comments is what specifically made Facebook huge then you've got some rethinking to do. –  squillman Sep 15 '11 at 18:51
@squllman, probably not all of it is becuase "Like", but for facebook "like" helps retain a lot of traffic. –  Suraj Chandran Sep 15 '11 at 19:46
