    It means someone clicked the "thumbs up" button under your answer. It has no benefit to you unless your answer is selected as Best Answer. In that case, you not only get 10 pts for Best Answer, but you get 1 extra point for every thumb up you receive, that exceeds the number of thumbs downs (up to 50 extra pts).

    It's also a way users can indicate they like/agree with your answer or not, although it's often also abused by some who will thumb up or down all answers, regardless of usefulness, or will thumb down or up all responses by a certain user, regardless of the quality of the answer.

    It was meant to show that the answerer gave a good answer. But these days it is used for cheating. First off, the answerer can give themselves a thumbs up and they are the first one to answer the question. It is legal but it is missed used. I have seen a user give themselves a thumbs up 2 seconds after answering. They also have sock accounts to thumb up there answer in the hopes it gets the best answer. They have followers who will also thumb up their answer. Its also used to downvote for someone they don't like. The rule should be changed in that the asker should be the only on to upvote or downvote an answer.
