fb_reactionsLast year Facebook announced an upcoming feature called Reactions. Basically instead of being merely able to “Like” a post, Reactions allowed users to express other kinds of emotions. Now earlier this year the company announced that the feature was being rolled out gradually, but the good news is that it looks like it is now open to everyone around the world.

According to an announcement by Facebook, “We’ve been listening to people and know that there should be more ways to easily and quickly express how something you see in News Feed makes you feel. That’s why today we are launching Reactions, an extension of the Like button, to give you more ways to share your reaction to a post in a quick and easy way.”

The feature is pretty straightforward and easy to use. In order to select from different reactions, hover your mouse over the Like button on Facebook if you’re on the computer to see the different options. If you are using Facebook on your phone, just hold down the Like button and you should see the different options made available to you as well.

There are currently six different reactions that users can choose from. You’ve got your standard Like, but it is also followed by Love, Haha, Wow, Sad, or Angry. Now if you don’t see it available to you yet, we expect that the feature is still in the process of being rolled out so fret not as you should be able to access it soon.
