Facebook is always thinking of new ways to improve your experience. Many things have been changed, updated or even scrapped since the popular social media site was founded in 2004 by Mark Zuckerberg.
One of the things we all do on Facebook is Like posts of kittens wearing taco suits, babies with fake moustaches and so on. With Facebook Reactions you will be given different ways to react to the things you see on your News Feed, without being restricted to only either Liking a post or commenting on it. This new way of reacting on Facebook will come in handy in those situations where a post doesn’t warrant a Like and you don’t necessarily want to comment with your feelings either.
With Facebook Reactions you are given five new ways of reacting and interacting on Facebook:
CEO and co-founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg states that Love has been the most popular Reaction so far.
Facebook states that it has been testing the new Reactions in certain countries but that it’s ready to share it with the world:
We have been testing Reactions in a few markets since last year, and have received positive feedback so far. Today, we’re excited to offer it to everyone who uses Facebook around the world. We will continue learning and listening to feedback to make sure we have a set of reactions that will be useful for everyone. We hope you enjoy the new Reactions!
