Last Month at a public Q&A session Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, announced that the site had already begun working on the new feature for users to express their reactions beyond the “Like” button. The set of reactions does not include the “Dislike”(Thumbs Down) button which was expected by a lot of users but instead of the dislike button it does provide an angry and sad smiley faces.It also include smiling face,heart,shocked face,and a laughing face.
It will work by either hovering or long-pressing the Like button and selecting the relevant emotion that you want to put in your message.Then as usual you will be able to see how many likes,love,smiling face,shocked face or laughing faces you have scored.
