Its been more than a year since Facebook started working on an alternative to its ‘like’ button. The company has finally come out will something cool and interesting, a “Reaction Button”.
Waking up this morning, i decided to reply some chat via Facebook. I saw a few pictures that interested me and so i decided to like. On trying to click the like button, behold i found something more interesting.
I quickly made a couple of search on google and discovered that it was an emotional reaction buttons and it has been available on some countries like Ireland, Spain, Chile, the Philippines, Portugal, Colombia and Japan for a while now.
Here was the first question that came to my mind
“why did this new development take time in getting to me?”
Any way, i’m glad it has arrived.
