From Buzzfeed:
"Facebook understands its "like" button doesn't work in all circumstances — you don't, for instance, want to hit "like" on your friend's post about their dead cat — so it's rolling out a test with six "reactions" that allow you to respond to posts with different emotions.

The "reactions" — Love, Haha, Yay, Wow, Sad, and Angry — show up when you hold down the Like button for about a half second on mobile, or hover over it on desktop. They are rolling out, at first, in Spain and Ireland, but Facebook Product Manager Adam Mosseri told BuzzFeed News that they may be available more broadly within weeks.

"As you can see, it's not a 'dislike' button, though we hope it addresses the spirit of this request more broadly," said Facebook Chief Product Officer Chris Cox in a post about Reactions this morning.

The six "reactions" are still in testing mode, so Facebook may take one away, or even add another. Just don't get your hopes up for an actual "dislike" button.

The big question about these "reactions" is how Facebook will use the data it collects from them. Advertisers might want to reach the people who "Angry" their competitors' posts, or they may want to spend more money to reach the people who "Yay" and "Wow" their posts. Facebook will have to be careful about how it makes this data available, if it does at all, or risk provoking an unkind reaction of its own."

So what do you guys think thinking.gif

I personally quite like the idea. I was a bit eugh about the very troll magnetising Dislike button but I guess by the current reaction buttons it's not that much of an issue concerning trolls abusing the new buttons.

I prefer this, a "sad" reaction allows you to show empathy without being trigger happy/trollish armed with a "dislike" button.

Hmm I'm not really sure yet. On the one hand it gives the chance for more elaborate reactions, rather than just 'like' (I know there's comments too but you know what I mean), but I did like the simplicity of just the 'like' button. I didn't like the idea of the 'dislike' button, couldn't imagine myself using it much. I see there's an 'angry' one now though tongue.gif

So tempted to use the angry reaction at my sister right now for putting up the most awful picture of us laugh.gif Neither of us look like ourselves...

It could do with an unsure.gif/confused reaction one as well tbh. Like when you want to respond to a post about some stupid new legislation David Cameron has introduced; I'm not sure any of the other reactions would fit right.

I'm not really bothered. My true friends will know what I'm feeling for them without me having to prove to everyone else how I feel.

I think this is a really cool idea, and a very clever way of getting around introducing a "dislike" button, which obviously would very quickly become misused.

I especially like the idea of 'love' and 'wow' buttons.

Don't know if they've been around for ages and I've just not noticed, but these have appeared on my News Feed for what I think is the first time today. Seems quite neat how they've done it!

I really hate it. It looks so weird. What was wrong with just a like button?

I saw something saw '... reacted to this' instead of the usual like but there was only the like button there.

I think it was nice in theory but it looks a bit messy in practice.

I'm a bit confused about these. I can SEE other people's emotions but can't see how do do my own.
