HELP HELP ZUCKERBERG HAS CHANGED THE RULES AGAIN DOOOOOOOOOOOOOM.
Okay, stay calm, people. You may have noticed by now, your Facebook has suddenly changed from being a one-emotion robot to a sensitive, hormonal mess. Not only can you Like a post now, you can have a myriad of emotional reactions to it.
To be specific: Like, Love, Haha, Wow, Sad or Angry.
According to a post by Facebook
gazillionaire CEO Mark Zuckerberg, “Our community has been asking for a dislike button for years, but not because people want to tell friends they don’t like their posts.”
“People wanted to express empathy and make it comfortable to share a wider range of emotions. Love is the most popular reaction so far, which feels about right to me.”
If you hover over the ‘Like’ button on your computer, or hold it down on your phone, the Reactions will pop up. And when you write a status, prepare for extra notifications, because you will be able to see exactly how people felt about it.
Time to lay some ground rules. STAT.
1. Don’t get trigger happy.
No one really cares how you feel about a status. In fact, remember that as a general rule of thumb. On Facebook, no one really cares.
2. Don’t ‘Haha’ inappropriately.
If someone has written a crappy, vague, emo status like ‘just so fed up.’… then don’t laugh at them with an emoticon button. Openly mock them with a sarcastic comment for attention-seeking.
3. Keep the Anger down to a minimum.
