The manner in we react to Facebook post is about to become broader, as Facebook is set to introduces changes to the like system. Options on how to respond to a post will now become broader.
These new reactions will range fro the normal like to emoticons depicting a particular reaction such as; grief, surprise, laughter and a few others. We will also be seeing a reintroduction of the love option for post, however, there will be no dislike button. As users may use it wrongly, and give a negative feedback to potential and already existing users.
This soon to be introduced system, is very much welcomed, considering the inconveniences and bewilderment one experiences upon seeing a disaster post having over a million likes. You begin to wonder, if disaster is something that should be liked, well, all that will soon be over. Soon we will be seeing a million cry faces on a disaster post or sad post, or better still a million hearts for a love post.
Furthermore, the soon to be introduced like system, is hoped to help increase interaction between user and Facebook. Facebook will be able see the kind of news a user responds more to, which could influence the type of adverts and public post the user sees. How good this new like is, will be know in the coming weeks.
