Facebook adds emotions

Good news Facebook fans, you can now add "emotions" to your Facebook posts so that everyone knows you are angry, happy, sad, or maybe a combination of the three when you reply to your friends post of what they had for lunch. Time will tell how this works out, but I'm guessing it won't be bringing people back to Facebook. Gizmodo has the story.

Facebook made another bad decision today, adding an unnecessary amount of nuance to your interactions on its social platform. You can now “sad” and “wow” not just posts and messages, but also comments. I don’t know about you, but I certainly don’t want this level of comprehensive feedback.

Why would you do this? “We’ve heard from people they’d like more ways to show their reaction in conversations on Facebook,” Facebook said in a statement.
