Facebook's redesigned Like button is finally here!!!

Facebook's New Like Button

After months of testing, the social network is finally rolling out reactions to everyone, Facebook announced Wednesday. The update, which includes four new reactions — Love, Haha, Wow, Sad and Angry — will be available to all users in the next couple of days.

Practically, reactions are very similar to likes: hold down on the Like button on the app (or hover over it with your mouse, if you're on desktop) to view all the reactions and tap on the one you want to add to a post. As with likes, you'll be able to see how many people have reacted to a particular post or photo.

The reactions rolling out today are the product of more than a year of research and experimentation. The biggest consideration through it all though was finding sentiments so universal that they would be easily translate across all the countries where people use Facebook (which is just about everywhere.) That's also why the company chose to roll the feature out first to countries like Spain, Portugal, Chile, Japan and Colombia before bringing them to the rest of the world.
