Last month, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced that the social networking site would soon be introducing a 'dislike' button, intended for users to easily share empathy and sympathy with their peers. In response, the internet collectively chucked their *awkward face* into the ring, concerned that Facebook would soon descend into an arena for negativity and trolling.
However, as it turns out, the set of reaction emoticons published by Engadget features not a thumbs down in sight. Instead, the like button is now accompanied by a heart and five expressive little friends, very happy, cute happy, shock face, cry face and angry face.
Without further ado, meet the little fellas that will soon be scattering your cat-posts and food porn pics for the foreseeable Facebook future:
According to The Verge, these changes will be rolled out to users in Spain and Ireland from tomorrow, Friday October 9th. We won't know exactly what the feature will look like until then, but we think it'll be something like this...
Exhibit A: Dead Avril Conspiracy Theory
Wait, the real Avril Lavigne isn't really the real Avril Lavigne?! *shock face*
Exhibit B: Disney Villains Get the Phwoar Factor
Ursula could wrap her tentacles around me any day! *hearts*
Exhibit C: Vin Diesel Skipped the Gym for Once, Chill Out Internet
People be bitchin' about Vin Diesel?! Not cool, guys *angry red forehead face*
Exhibit D: Sexually Frustrated Ghost Haunts Remote Forest Cabin
She...handjobs her victims...to death? NOPE *cry face*
Exhibit E: Michael Jackson's Daughter Is All Grown Up!
Awwwww, she looks so happy and healthy! *cute smile face*
What do you make of the Facebook reactions?
