HONOLULU, Hawaii (The Adobo Chronicles) – Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg today unveiled the new ‘Reactions’ buttons on Facebook which will start rolling out in Spain and Ireland.
The new buttons are Facebook’s response to users’ clamor that a ‘Dislike’ button be added to posts on the social media network.
Instead of a ‘Dislike’ button, Facebook decided in favor of other reactions that would express the user’s expression of love, anger, happiness and awe.
At the same time, Zuckerberg announced that starting next month, Facebook will add another button for its Hawaii special edition. Facebook users living or visiting Hawaii will be able to respond to posts with a ‘shaka’ sign (also knownb as ‘hang loose) to express their spirit and feeling of Aloha.
Both Native Hawaiians and residents, along with tourists, praised Zuckerberg’s announcement.
