It is a major part of the FB experience, and in Twitter land one has the same with RT. This lack of intentional feedback, makes blogs a lot less personal than they need be.

The blog post could then simply add a like relation to the user's WebId to the RSS feed. This could of course also be used for comments. A good blog engine could then parse the foaf and use the information gleaned there to produce a profile of the liking person: what blogs he had (verified if the blog points back to the webid), what SN he is on, etc....
