Finally Facebook Launches Our Emotions


It is finally here – Facebook Reactions

The world wide launch of Facebook Reactions, or as I like to call it “My emotions”, has finally arrived and we are happy about it (at least I am). Facebook has finally given us a way to express our feelings on someone’s post. As of now you have 5 new ways you can express yourself when reacting to someone’s Facebook post. Instead of just giving their post the finger (Thumbs Up) you can choose one of these.

Now you have LOVE, HAHA, WOW, SAD and ANGRY. The way it works is, if you are on your computer you just hover your mouse cursor over the LIKE button and all the choices will appear.

If you are on your smartphone you hold your finger down on the LIKE button and the other options will appear just like on your computer. It is that simple.

This has been in the works for a while. Facebook has been testing this in Spain and Ireland and it has been very popular. It’s launching today (Feb 24th) on iOS, Android, and the web. Now choose your emotions wisely and have fun doing it. Love to hear your thoughts on this new feature.


What do you think?

  1. It’s definitely time! Nothing worse than “liking” someone’s death, divorce, or other low point in their life to show your support. 🙁

    • I agree with you David on that it is weird to only have the Like when it came to something like death. This should have been done a long time ago. Very surprised they took this long to figure that this was a good idea.

  2. I can’t say I’m surprised there aren’t more negative options. Many people now-a-days can’t handle a little criticism and expect every little nugget they put out there to be treated like a gem rather than the doggie doodie it is. Maybe they should add the option of “you moron” that would give me lots of options to show how I really feel the next time someone shows me a pic of their lunch.

    • I would so go for the “You Moron” button Sara. You are right about people not being able to handling strong criticism in our world today. That is probably why Facebook made sure to test out the ones they did pick before releasing this world wide. If only we had a social website you could be totally honest with each other instead of having to tip toe around everyone.
