Facebook's New Reaction Buttons Go Live Today

By Bryan Lufkin on at

Why simply say you “like” a friend’s post on Facebook, when you can now react with “love”, “haha”, “wow”, “sad”, or “angry”? The global rollout for all those reaction buttons on the social network starts on Wednesday.

The new reaction array comes after a year of testing in Ireland and Spain. It’s also available for both personal Facebook profiles and Facebook Pages. Despite some early rumours, however, there’s still no “dislike” button. There’s also no “yay” button even though Facebook tested it, and it’s undeniably the best reaction to anything. No yay for you.
