FeedLike

Indicates that a user has liked a feed item. FeedLike records represent likes on posts and not likes on comments. Likes on comments can’t be queried via the API. A FeedLike is a child object of an associated FeedItem, FeedTrackedChange, or object feed, such as AccountFeed. This object is available in API version 21.0 and later.

Supported Calls

create(), delete(), describeSObjects()

Special Access Rules

If the logged-in user has the “Insert System Field Values for Chatter Feeds” user permission, the create field property is available on CreatedBy and CreatedDate system fields for this object. This allows the logged-in user to set these fields to the original post author and creation date upon migration instead of accepting the system field value when migrated, which would be the logged-in user and the date the migration was performed, respectively. The fields can't be updated after migration.
