Suggested Facebook reactions

You’ve probably read about the addition of Facebook’s “reactions” – which are basically an expansion of emoticon alternatives to the familiar “like” option. You can read more about them here if you’re feeling particularly “Yay” but the six emoticons are intended to represent: Love, Haha, Yay, Wow, Sad and Anger.

Not surprisingly, as you can read in either the Wired article above or elsewhere on the great expanse of the interwebs, some Facebookers are upset that not every emotion they want to convey is represented. Some might suggest using words to express more complex emotions but hey… Who are we? Shakespeare? C’mon…

Not to worry – We’re here to propose four more realistic Facebook “reactions” usage. They are (order from left to right): Checking Facebook While Pooping, Work Distraction, Muted Response So As To Avoid Getting Into A Political Argument With Your Crazy Family & Friends, and Pity Like.

So in case you come across this blog post while you’re pooping, Mr. Zuckerberg, we hope you take these suggestions into consideration for the next major Facebook upgrade.
