Facebook is testing a new expressive function

A few weeks ago, Mark Zuckerberg announced that Facebook would receive a “I do not like” button, which the site users have long been demanding. It seems, however, that it will not be the only option to express its own feelings about published entries, as Facebook is testing a completely new feature called Reactions.

This is a new option that allows you to more clearly express your own feelings about the posts on your profile, using emoticons. Instead of the well-known thumb-up which means we like the post, this time we have a choice of seven different icons showing joy, satisfaction, surprise, sadness, love and rage.

Thanks to this solution, users will be able to express their feelings more precisely, especially for entries where the usual “Like” is not always appropriate. Users in this way can connect in pain with the author of the post, show that he has brought them joy, or show how surprised they are, that is, doing what in every chat or discussion on online forums, it is possible for years.
