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.

Lost Frequencies – Are You With Me (Official Music Video)
In 2014, Belgian DJ and producer Lost Frequencies took the music and the refrain from the song, speeding up the track and releasing it in October 2014 as a remix. The song reached number one on Belgium’s Ultratop Flanders chart and peaked at number two on Belgium’s Wallonia francophone chart. In July 2015, the single topped the charts in the United Kingdom, where it holds the distinction of having the shortest reign at the top of the UK Singles Chart of any single for 46 years due to the following chart being the first to be released on a Friday rather than a Sunday (before August 1969, this had occurred on a Wednesday), when it was replaced by David Zowie’s “House Every Weekend”. The song also topped the charts in other countries, including Germany, Ireland, Switzerland, Australia and Austria.
A woman in Ireland named Denise O’Reilly grabbed some money from her purse last month, and one of the bills had a message on it that said, “Christy, it’s always been you. Come and find me.” And it was signed by someone named Megan.
So Denise posted a picture of it online, and asked people to share it, so whoever ‘Christy’ was might see it. And it actually WORKED. Thousands of people shared it on Facebook, and a guy named Christy Leech came forward the next day.
It turns out he’s a musician, and his ex-girlfriend wrote the note. He says they broke up a while back, then she came to one of his shows about six months ago, and wrote the note before she used the bill to pay the cover.
Apparently she thought the money would go straight to the band, but Christy didn’t see it, and never knew she was there. He also says her name isn’t actually Megan. It’s an inside joke, because he THOUGHT her name was Megan the first time they met.
It’s not clear if they’re dating again, and we still don’t know her real name. But he confirmed that they ARE back in touch now.
By the way, he also said the line “It’s always been you” that she wrote on the money is the name of a SONG he wrote about her while they were still together.
CRANBERRIES singer DOLORES O’RIORDAN caused a disturbance on an international flight this week and it was bad enough that it got her ARRESTED when the flight landed.
She was flying from New York to her home country of Ireland yesterday, when she freaked out on the flight crew. We don’t know why, but she assaulted a female flight attendant, who reportedly suffered a BROKEN FOOT.
Then when they landed in Ireland, the police boarded the plane to arrest her . . . and she HEAD-BUTTED a cop.
Dolores was taken to the station, but complained she was feeling sick. So she was briefly hospitalized, then released. She hasn’t been charged with anything yet, and the police are still investigating.
Dolores hasn’t commented, so we don’t know her side of the story. But before the flight took off, a random traveler Tweeted, quote, “So Dolores O’Riordan just boarded our flight wearing a red and black superhero mask. #Strange.”
Wow. Acting like a zombie aboard a long flight is such a disappointment. Anyone over 21 should know there’s no need to argue. But let’s not linger on such ridiculous thoughts. Just forget about everything I said. OK, I’ll stop.
