My reaction: ๐Ÿ˜„ I like this addition -- much better than introducing a "dislike" button -- and it will give Facebook more structured data to optimize its feed (and improve its ad targeting). Reminds me a lot of Meerkat's reaction emojis as well. cc @benrbn @jsneedles

@jsneedles @rrhoover this is clearly a trend. Make PH reaction emojis happen ASAP! ๐Ÿ˜œ

@jackdweck @rrhoover Ryan and I had a (surprisingly) long chat about this on a car ride once.

Very nice! Any reasons why Ireland and Spain first? Curious to know ๐Ÿ˜

@healves82 my guess is that probably between them they represent a big enough sample size to draw decent conclusions from, but still small enough to avoid any major issues or PR backlash. also probably good to test with 2 major languages (English and Spanish) to see how it works cross-lingually?

@healves82 Read about this: they found that Spain & Ireland were the two countries where most users had friends MOSTLY within their same country.

Facebook moves beyond the "Like" button with Reactions โ€” a fun way to express sympathy with emojis, starting today with a test in Ireland and Spain. Slack recently added emoji reactions as a feature to its wildly popular messaging service and I've been using it every day since. I'm curious to see if Facebook users will take the time to react with emojis, or just stick with using the Like button.

I'm usually up for change, but a bit scared by this launch. Does feel a bit like the golden age of emojis in MSN Messenger no?
