Facebook Launches ‘Reaction’ Emojis Today
The ‘Like’ button on Facebook is getting some siblings. Facebook users have been asking for a different buttons other than just a ‘like’ button to express their feelings about postings, and they’re finally getting their wish.
It’s tough to to ‘Like’ a post about your best friend’s cat dying, and sometimes you’re thinking ‘Wow’ rather thank ‘Like’ when your boyfriend’s little sister posts a butt selfie. Facebook has resisted the call for a ‘Dislike’ button, but the new set of “reactions” will let your friends know exactly what you think about their 10th baby picture of the day.
When you’re on your smart phone, all you have to do is hold down the ‘Like’ button to access the new “Love,” “Haha,” “Wow,” “Sad,” and “Angry” reactions. If you’re on your computer, just hover over the ‘Like’ button to get the new reactions.
