Facebook tests new buttons, which let its users to express much greater variety of emotions than existing “Like”.
Mark Zuckerberg explained that alternative buttons offer its users a wide range of emotions when using “Like” is simply inappropriate. For instance when someone posts about death, disaster and other sad incidents using “Like” is just inadequately. The so called “Reactions” gives more ways to share emotions. It includes not only a traditional “Like” button but several new options what helps to react on a certain situation with a suitable response.
The feature will begin being tested in Ireland and Spain on Friday.
