How do I properly increase an int value in my database if it is constantly changing?

iOS Programming - Wed, 11/14/2018 - 17:25

So I am using firebase. I basically assign each post a score that gets increased by 1 with every like. How do I grab that value and increase it if I have users constantly inc and dec it. My fear is if I query that value and increase it by 1, if the value is constantly changing due to a high amount of users on the app the value that was queried could have already been changed and when I set the new value when the like action is finished I would actually be setting the new score at a number that is way off. If that is confusing here is an example.

Say I have a million users on the app constantly liking and unliking posts so the scores are in a constant state of change.

If user A clicks the like button which queries the current score value in that millisecond which is 500 let's say.

The like action adds 1 to that and sets the new value at 501

However by the time the action is completed that value of 500 could have changed to 550 or 600 due to the high amount of users liking and unliking posts, and setting the new value at 501 could completely throw the score off

How do I prevent that type of situation
