Testing’s over, it’s now live
If you’ve checked your Facebook lately, you might have seen several new emoticons below posts in your news feed. These are the new reactions emoticons, first tested in Spain and Ireland.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerburg previously said that the new emojis “gives you new ways to express love, awe, humor and sadness”. From what we’re seeing in our feed, it seems like reactions have moved away from testing to full blown deployment. Some people may not see it and it’s not showed up on the mobile app as yet (our app is completely up-to-date) so it may take a little bit more time to get to everybody’s wall.
To access reactions, simply move your mouse button over the like icon and wait for the other emoticons to show up.
