Like and Love…what’s the difference?

How many times have you clicked “LIKE” today? How about those other ‘reactions’ like LOVE, HAHA, WOW, SAD or ANGRY?

Those extra reactions are now one year old and until a few days ago clicking on them was no different than clicking on LIKE, but no more. Very soon, Facebook will be adding extra ‘weight’ to those reactions to determine the sorts of things you see on your News Feed. Normally when you “LIKE” something, Facebook decides that you want to see more of that type of content. Soon if you click LOVE or ANGRY, you may see more of those too. Just remember, everything you do on Social Media has a consequence even it’s not obvious.
