For years, the “Like” button had been the only option for responding to posts on Facebook. But approximately one year ago, everything changed. Facebook came up with a solution, providing users with “Love,” “Haha,” “Wow,” “Sad,” and “Angry” reactions to convey the myriad of emotions that your friends and family’s posts elicit. And the people did rejoice. Because they really didn’t have the option to do otherwise since a “Dislike” button was not included thanks to a perverse desire to hobble natural reactions. “Dislike” isn’t the only option that everyday users are still pining for, though. Here are a few reaction emojis that could help you tell people how you really feel.
People take great pains to curate their lives for Facebook. You are getting the best they have to offer (in most cases). This means that, at some point, you will be mad jelly. Fact. Deep down, you don’t “Like” that your friend went on a tropical vacation. You would gladly boot her right out of that sun chair and plant yourself in it. Sure, envy and coveting are biblically frowned upon, but so is lying. Just be honest.
