These six new emoji reactions are coming to Facebook

There’s been talk recently about Facebook adding the ‘dislike’ button for situations when your standard ‘like’ doesn’t convey an appropriate emotional reaction.

It turns out Facebook are planning on much more than simply adding a ‘dislike’ button, they’re going to make six further emoticons available.

The new ‘Facebook Reactions’ offer users a number of ways to respond to a post, from your traditional like to a love, yay, haha or wow, with the other end of the emotional spectrum accounted for with sad and angry faces.


Tests will initially be carried out in Ireland and Spain, though if the response is positive we can likely expect other countries to be added at a later date.
