Facebook new reactions.

Now you can do a whole lot more than “like” a Facebook post. “Love,” “Haha,” “Wow,” “Sad,” and “Angry” are five new Facebook buttons that people can click when responding to a post.Anyone who uses Facebook can now choose from these “Reactions” on top of liking, commenting or sharing something.

 If you’re on your phone, the new buttons appear after you hold down the Like button.
If you’re on a computer, you’ll see them when you hover your mouse over the Like button.


Facebook (FB, Tech30) researchers, engineers and product teams have spent more than a year preparing Reactions for launch. They worked with sociologists, consulted focus groups and conducted surveys to determine which emotions would make the final cut. They looked at the most popular stickers and emojis on the platform for clues too.
