You can add Reactions to Facebook comments
Love them or hate them, Facebook’s Reactions aren’t going away.
The social network is expanding its like button yet again. This time, it’s comments that are getting the new emoji-filled treatment.
Facebook appears to finally be expanding its Reactions to comments, so users can add “love,” “haha,” “wow,” “sad,” and “angry” to individual replies instead of News Feed posts alone. The social network hasn’t officially announced the update but it’s begun to show up on Facebook’s desktop site for many people as of Wednesday.
We’ve reached out to Facebook for more info but in the meantime, here’s what it looks like. As with Reactions on posts, you can add a Reaction to a comment by hovering over the like button.
This isn’t the first time Facebook has expanded Reactions since it started rolling out the feature in News Feed last year. The company brought the feature to Messenger earlier this year as well (Messenger’s Reactions, notably, included a “thumbs down” emoji, which is still the closest thing we’re ever going to get to a “dislike” button.)
The fact that Reactions are now expanding to comments is either long overdue or completely terrible, depending on how you feel about the cartoonish-emoji. (Just remember, advertisers can use your Reactions in News Feed to their advantage.) No matter how you feel, though, your comments are going to get a lot more colorful.
