FACEBOOK REACTIONS HOW TO USE THEM WELL
WHY THE NEW FACEBOOK REACTIONS IS IMPORTANT
The highlighted area in image above is how the new reactions look. We now have six expressions replacing the initial only like button they are like, love, wow, haha, sad and angry are the additions.This has been a long time demand by users but Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said this morning in a statement he posted on his wall that he has to give it a long thought in order to do it well.
Today is our worldwide launch of Reactions — the new Like button with more ways to express yourself.
Not every moment you want to share is happy. Sometimes you want to share something sad or frustrating. Our community has been asking for a dislike button for years, but not because people want to tell friends they don’t like their posts. People wanted to express empathy and make it comfortable to share a wider range of emotions.
I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about the right way to do this with our team. One of my goals was to make it as simple as pressing and holding the Like button.
The result is Reactions, which allow you to express love, laughter, surprise, sadness or anger.
Love is the most popular reaction so far, which feels about right to me!
