(Wyoming) Facebook is rolling out updates this morning that include more "complex" emotions other than the traditional "thumbs up." According to CNN
social media platform has spent more than a year creating "Reactions" for
your status updates. If you felt the old "like" button didn't suit your
needs in terms of wordless reactions to news, now "heart" "happy face"
"tear-drop sad face" "surprised" and "angry" are available when you want to
let someone know you're upset about their grandmother's death, but are
driving and can't fully express your sorrow.
Facebook worked with a team of sociologists, had focus groups, and surveys
in order to narrow the selection down. They nixed the idea for a "dislike"
"That doesn't seem like the kind of community that we want to create,"
Zuckerberg said during a town hall Q&A.
This is one of the biggest changes to Facebook since its launch. Have you
