Facebook Inc.’s users worldwide are no longer limited to a response of “like” to a post.
The social network has added five more choices: “love”, “haha”, “wow”, “sad” and “angry”.
The project, called Reactions, involved months of testing and tweaking to determine the best options, Bloomberg reported.
Users have long called for a “dislike” button, which the company rejected because it would create a negative atmosphere.
Facebook has been increasing its news content through partnerships with media companies for Instant Articles.
Tragic news, for example, may require more nuanced responses than a “like”.
