In February, Facebook added 5 new symbols to let you react to someone’s post. They’re meant to give you a shorthand way to respond without necessarily having to comment.facebook-reactions-1Why the change? Because sometimes “Like” isn’t what you really feel. I don’t know about you, but when my friends post something about a tragedy, sometimes I don’t know what to say, but I know I don’t want to say nothing. It’s not like you can click the Like button in a situation like that.

“My dog just died.”

I don’t think so.

Of course, the range of human emotions is probably larger than six. A lot larger. But maybe six is better than one. And human emotions are probably a lot subtler than fiercely angry, weeping with sadness, and laughing maniacally. Probably.

So, what do you think? Have you used Facebook’s new Reaction Emojis yet? Like? Love? Wow?
