After several months of testing Facebook Reactions in Ireland and Spain, Facebook Chief Product Manager Chris Cox said in an interview with Bloomberg that the feature will roll out globally in a few weeks time.
The Facebook Reactions is a set of emoji displayed as a drop-down menu below the usual Like Button and will be available both on Pages and User Profiles. There will be 5 emoji: Angry, Sad, Wow, Haha and Love. Yay was dropped because it was not universally understood.
And no, there is no Dislike emoji.
The Facebook Reactions will roll out globally in a few weeks time. Personally, I couldn’t find a Facebook Reactions emoji that reflects my reaction to this news. Not really a fan of this. Prefer the simplicity of a Like button.
