Toggle-like buttons can be used in a wide variety of applications. Here are a few instances of how a React-implemented toggle-like button may be utilized in actual applications: 

  • Social networking platform: To allow users to like or dislike posts, photographs, or other content, a toggle-like button could be employed. 
  • On a news website, use a toggle-like button to allow users to express whether they liked or disliked an article. 
  • Online marketplace: As visitors browse the site, a toggle-like button might be employed to let them label things as "favorites" or "not favorites." 
  • Video-sharing website: A toggle-like button could be employed to allow viewers to like or dislike videos on the website. 
  • Review websites: Toggle-like buttons might be used to let people rate reviews based on whether they liked them or not or if they thought they were helpful. 

Here's an example of how you can implement a React toggle-like button:
