Facebook rolls out new ‘reactions’

Facebook rolls out new ‘reactions’

04 February 2016,   By ,   0 Comments

When Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg hinted that Facebook was working on an upgrade to its famous Like button many suspected the launch of a “dislike” option. Instead, the clever minds at Facebook introduced a far more empathetic set of 6 ’emojis’ that best represent our most common emotions.

The new set of reactions includes love, laughter, happiness, shock, sadness and anger as well as the original thumbs up and is currently in its test phase in just two markets (Spain and Ireland) until they decide whether to tweak it and/or how to roll it out further.

Facebook has caught up with social networks like Path and sites like Buzzfeed, who already give users the ability to respond to posts with different reactions beyond simple likes and ‘faves’.

Users can find the new reactions on both mobile and desktop & on all news feed posts.
