Facebook Reactions

Hi Friends,

Good News to all Facebook users.. now you can express your reaction in five more ways other than "Like". Facebook has launched on Wednesday the five new emoticons are extension to existing "Like" button.These are namely "Love", "Haha" , "Wow" "Sad" ."Angry". 

Previously it was very confusing & awkward when we wanted to react to "Facebook Post" other than "like". It was demand from Facebook users since long to have more ways to express reactions beside "like"button.


For more than year Facebook was conducting global research including focus groups and surveys to determine what types of reactions people would want to use most. Facebook  also observed at how people are already commenting on posts and the top stickers and emoticons as signals for the types of reactions people are already using to determine which reactions to offer.

Facebook had launched pilot project of "Reactions"at Beta stage in the market like spain,Ireland in October.The "Yay" emoticon which was part of pilot launch was not seen the launch video on Wednesday ,which means Facebook has removed "yay"emoticon from list.
