Facebook Emoji 'Reactions'

Thanks to the Global Launch of Facebook Emoji ‘Reactions’…You no longer have to just “LIKE” a post!

The “LIKE” button has finally evolved. Facebook unveiled five animated emojis you can choose from instead of just the standard “LIKE” including Love, HaHa, Wow, Sad & Angry

By popular demand, Facebook is going beyond the ubiquitous thumbs-up button with a new shorthand to express your thoughts and feelings.

Acknowledging that “LIKE” isn’t exactly the right sentiment for every occasion. The new Emoji’s rolled out to Facebook’s nearly 1.6 billion users around the globe Wednesday February 24th.

After more than a year of research, focus groups, surveys & more done by Facebook…You now have more authentic ways to quickly and easily respond to posts, whether they are sad, serious, funny or happy.

Facebook will continue to gather feedback on the feature and could tweak it down the line. While the company doesn’t have plans right now to expand “Reactions” to other Facebook-owned apps like Instagram, the feature could carry over to other apps in the future.
