WordPress supports Trackback and Pingback functionality which is mostly used to track our blogs. We can get the notification when other person is like or share our blog on the same or different website. Also we got notification whenever other person uses our blog as a link in other site.
This is same as Facebook post share functionality. Trackback is mostly used to track our blog or post & Pingback is used whenever other person share or use our content. User gets notification when admin like their blog/post and comment on their blog/post or share that blog/post. This notification will be sent to user by Email, so user will get idea that whom so ever like or reply on their own post.
