Any Facebook user knows that not everything on deserves a like. Now, the forward-thinking tech company has finally adapted the interactive function into a more expressive range of reactions for users.
After more than a year of in-depth research that included focus groups, surveys and work with sociologists to create emotions that are â€œuniversally understood and equally useful,â€ Facebook have launched Reactions, a new set of emoji-like options that includes â€˜loveâ€™, â€˜sadâ€™, â€˜hahaâ€™, â€˜wowâ€™ and â€˜angryâ€™.
â€œWe wanted to be really, really careful about which reactions we [launched],” product manager Summi King told CNNMoney. â€Are we giving people more tools to express themselves more accurately and authentically?”
Users can now hover over the â€˜likeâ€™ button and choose a reaction from the automatic toolbar that appears.
Youâ€™ll never have to â€˜likeâ€™ a post about Donald Trump again.
