How to like or comment on shared images and videos in Photos for OS X

Shared Photo Streams are pretty much a private version of an a photo album you'd post on a regular social media site. Only the people invited can view and add photos. But like social networks, you can also comment and like photos and other people in the group will get a notification.

You've always been able to do this in the Photos app for iPhone and iPad, and now you can do it right on your Mac with Photos for Mac!
