In English, we say "Me too" or "Me neither" to share the same opinion as something somebody else says. This is a common error, but it won't be after you read this.

The Basic Difference
Positive or negative.
Basically, if the sentence is about "not" something, use neither. If it's affirmative, use too.
A: You're the best!
B: You (are) too!
A: I'm so bored.
B: Me too.
A: I'm not a liar!
B: Me neither!
What about a word like "hate"? Is it used with me too or me neither?
Me too. - Even though 'hate' is a negative and ugly word, if it's not used with the word NOT or NEVER, you say "me too". For example above, "I hate hot dogs." You would say, "Me too". - Or you would say, "Really? I love them!"
