Ever come across a tear-jerking video or post on Facebook and struggle with how to digitally react?
Sure. Everyone has. You don’t necessary Like that a friend’s family-member is in the hospital, but you want to show support and give the post a boost, with the hopes of others will see it – be notified, share emotional support, etc.
Liking something just doesn’t seem to cover many emotional reactions we may have to a story.
Facebook has finally upped their game in this area.
They’ve now introduced more post reactions. If you hover your mouse over the "Like" link, you’re now presented with additional options.
There’s the Thumbs-Up, representing the typical Like. But now you also have Love, Haha, Wow, Sad and Angry, along with their acompanying cute emoticons.
But this has been released for a few weeks now, actually. And although I, personally, have been making use of the new choices, I am only seeing slight traction from others. What say you? Are you using them? Do you Like them?
