Nothing brings you closer to the world, better than Facebook. From developing an idea of the global happenings to stealing a glance at your friend’s life, Facebook offers it all. Perhaps, that is the reason that this social media platform records a whopping 1.59 billion active users per month. Quite inevitably, the platform offers ample opportunities for sharing your thoughts, views and updates with friends and family residing across the globe.
And it is News Feed that makes it happen for you. As a central hotspot for sharing views and information as well as carrying out conversation with near ones, News Feed also offers chances of expressing your thoughts on certain conversations.
With this aspect in mind, Facebook’s creative heads have decided to launch a unique way expressing emotions and responses. Known as Facebook Reactions, this particular integration in the News Feed segment makes it easier for users to share views and post reactions. Facebook Reactions can be regarded as an interesting extension of Like button.
With as many as six emojis representing six different states of mind or expressions, Reactions is undoubtedly one of the most amazing ways of communicating on Facebook. The six expressions represented by Reactions are Like, Angry, Love, Sad, Haha and Wow. Depending on the nature of the posts, you can select any of these buttons to express your views.
Facebook’s signature style of offering easy-to-use integrations proves to be highly beneficial for first-time users. And the company has made no exception in case of Facebook Reactions. It is quite easy to use. All you need to do is tap on the Like button for some time if you are using your mobile devices. Or you can also hover over this Like Button while operating on a desktop.
Facebook Reactions experienced its first launch in the countries of Ireland and Spain. Quite inevitably, user responses were phenomenal, and the trend quickly traveled to Columbia, Portugal, Philippines and Chile. Finally, it is heading towards the other countries and will reach them within a next few weeks.
It was not just creative or innovative efforts involved in the creation of Reactions. The emotional aspect and cognitive capacities of users were also taken into account while developing the emojis. According to reports, Facebook worked in close collaboration with sociologists while choosing the emojis. Additionally, there were considerations about the most prevalent and used emoticons on Facebook.
Apart from Reactions, Facebook also took a step further with Instant Articles, thus offering publishers the opportunity to popularize their contents. These articles perfectly suited the screen resolutions of the users’ respective devices, thus ensuring an unsurpassed User Experience. Apart from that, Facebook channelized substantial efforts to preserve the original feel and look of these published contents.
While Facebook Instant Articles happens to be a treat for dedicated authors and writers, Facebook Reactions pleases every single Facebook user. With the emergence of this trend, Facebook will inevitably score brownie points with millions of worldwide users, and give its competitors a hard time.
