Facebook today said it is prepared to expand the way people interact with posts in the Newsfeed by providing more than just the Like button. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg recently hinted that the company is working on a way to show more emotional responses to posts. Reactions, which include Like, Love, Haha, Yay, Wow, Sad, and Angry, appear to be the answer. Facebook plans to test Reactions in Ireland and Spain starting this week to gauge how effective they are. Facebook said it will infer people who interact with posts — whether it be to like a story or share empathy — will want to to see similar posts more often. Facebook didn't say how long it plans to test the feature before rolling it out to everyone.
