After over a year of testing and feedback from users, Facebook has started to roll out the new ‘Reactions’ button. It will help users express love, happiness, anger, shock and sadness.

In October last year, Facebook  started testing its new reaction button  that will allow users to express wide range of emotions on the social network through emojis. Now, four months later, the social media giant has started rolling out the emojis to all users. In a blog post, Facebook mention that it had been testing the new reaction buttons and now it’s ready for full-fledged release.

With the new ‘Reactions’ users now have a button to express Like, Love, Haha, Wow, Sad or Angry. Facebook expects the News Feed to be filled with more emotive responses.

To use these buttons on mobile, users need to hold down the ‘Like’ button after which the new emojis will appear. Simply tap on any of them to use it. Similarly, on a desktop, users just need to hover over the ‘Like’ button to select and use the new emojis.

While many had been expecting Facebook to introduce a ‘dislike’ button, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg wrote in a Facebook post “Reactions gives you new ways to express love, awe, humor and sadness. It’s not a dislike button, but it does give you the power to easily express sorrow and empathy — in addition to delight and warmth.”
