Facebook Confirms ‘Reactions’ Feature

Facebook has finally confirmed that it is testing a new feature called “Reactions” to see how users will benefit from the new option.

The general populace of Facebook has long been demanding the “Unlike” option for posts and statuses. Mark Zuckerberg, a genius in himself, instead of launching the simple dislike button experimented with something new.

Apart from expressing your dislike towards the posts; users can go through a list of options. For quite some time now, there were rumors that Facebook is rolling out the “Dislike” button option, but the CEO opted for a more versatile option.

Through the “Reactions” feature, Mark Zuckerberg is introducing a whole array of animated emoji that fall under this option.

This means that users can now exactly express what they are feeling regarding that post instead of the plain like or dislike.

Fellow Facebook users can now easily tell you if they are happy, sad, angry or in love with your post. An animated “Like”, “Wow”, “Love”, “Yay”, “Haha”, “Sad”, or “Angry” emoji can then be selected to express your emotions to the individual whose topic you are commenting on.

The testing option is not yet available across the globe but only for users in Spain and Ireland.

If the testing within these areas goes according to the plan, then it can be expected that Mark Zuckerberg and the team will soon roll out the “Reactions” feature to its billion or so active users in the coming weeks and months around the world.

If you are one of those lucky people who are capable of testing this feature then immediately go to the like button and let the world know about your true feelings!
