Facebook ‘Reactions’ to launch in a few weeks

Facebook will finally address the demand for a ‘Dislike’ button by providing five more ‘Reactions’ for users to choose from.

This new option is the company’s response to the demand for a ‘Dislike’ button, something that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said he found too negative to even consider.

The program has been in testing since October of last year and Facebook has been letting users do more than just like; they can now add a range of reactions: Love, Haha, Wow, Sad and Angry. Yay was also tested, but won’t make the final release.

The new ‘Reactions’ are set to come soon globally but won’t replace the like button! Users will be able to press and hold the like button for the other options to appear.

Here’s a video of how it will work, made before the decision to get rid of “yay”:
