Facebook Is Testing “Reaction Emojis”

graphics-labels_EN.0

Remember last month when Facebook announced they were finally adding a DISLIKE button? People were thrilled. I mean, what could be MORE useful in an election year.

But now it looks like that might NOT be the plan. Instead of a dislike button, Facebook has started testing “reaction emojis.” Lame.

In other words, there’d be no option to click a thumbs-down to “dislike” a post. There would be seven different emojis to choose from.

The old ‘thumbs-up’ to like a post . . . a heart for “love” . . . a laughing face for “haha” . . . a happy face for “yay” . . . a shocked face for “wow” . . . a crying face for “sad” . . . and a mad face for “anger.”

Right now they’re just being tested in Ireland and Spain . . . there’s no word whether Facebook plans to take them worldwide.
