Liking' On Facebook Is About To Get Interesting With New 'reactions' Emoticons by blueghost(m): 12:00pm On Oct 09, 2015
Forget the like button - that's so 2009.
Facebook says it's bringing in several emoticons
you'll be able to use instead soon. (Thumb fans,
don't despair, that's not going anywhere).
The new "reactions" will let users express love,
laughter, happiness, shock, sadness and anger.
It works by hovering or long-pressing the Like
button and selecting the relevant emoji that you
want to put in your message.
The status will then count how many likes, loves,
angers, etc. you've had.
An example of how
'reactions' will work
It comes just three weeks after Facebook boss
Mark Zuckerberg said the social network was
finally working on a "dislike button" after years of
calls from users.
But it now looks like this is the alternative he
was talking about.
At the time, he said he wanted people to be able
to show empathy, but not to put down other
people's posts.
The site's chief product officer, Chris Cox, now
says the new "expressive like button" is being
rolled out in a test run starting in Ireland and
"As you can see, it's not a 'dislike' button, though
we hope it addresses the spirit of this request
more broadly."
An example of how the love
'reaction' will look
He says they studied the comments and reactions
most commonly expressed across Facebook
before coming up with what he calls an "elegant
and fun" design around them.
The company says it hopes to roll the feature out
to everyone soon.
