After much speculation over a ‘dislike’ button, Facebook is trialling emotional reactions for users, such as ‘love’ and ‘laughter’
How exciting! Facebook is to trial “reactions” options for users responding to content, which rather proves that merely being able to “like” something was somewhat limiting the human emotional spectrum.
From Friday, Ireland and Spain (are they particularly emotive nations?) will be the first to test the new feature. Despite wide reporting that Facebook was working on a “dislike” button in September, it seems Zuckerberg has decided that a binary choice of like and dislike is too specific.
