  • Questions that get responses don't move down the list as quickly as those with no answers. If someone doesn't get the answers they want, or much advice, they will put a "bump" just so that an answer has been posted and keeping toward the top of the questions.

    But I don't think it works that well for the Q+A boards, I think its more for groups posts and things.

  • people BUMP posts in groups. When a post is replied to, it moved to the top of the page.
    People reply by saying, "BUMP" because they have nothing to add to the post, but they wanted other people to see it.

    A bump is typically a compliment! So congrats if you get them!
