*Updated February 24, 2015 – Facebook Reactions in beta is now live globally! Hop over to Facebook.com and check out how you can engage with posts.
How you “like” posts on Facebook is about to change.
One month after Mark Zuckerberg announced that Facebook was experimenting with a “dislike” button, the social network launched Facebook Reactions in beta mode – an extension of the Like button that gives users more ways to share their reaction to a post in a quick and easy way.
These new set of six “reaction emojis” will sit alongside the original thumbs-up button to let users quickly respond with love, laughter, happiness, shock, sadness and anger.
When Will it Be Facebook Reactions in Beta Launched?
Facebook is starting to release Reactions to users in Ireland and Spain in a beta move. Keep an eye out on a release to North America in the near future.
