WE ARE SOCIAL ASIA TUESDAY TUNE UP #254
A year after rolling out Reactions on its newsfeed, Facebook is giving some users the option to use Reactions and a Dislike button – on Messenger. The purpose for this is to tidy messy, rapid-fire conversations online.
How it works – you use Reaction buttons to react to specific messages in the thread, making them useful when more messages come in before you can respond to the one you’re interested in.
According to Facebook, people often use Messenger for planning and coordination, and it’s experimenting to see if Reactions will be helpful for quick logistics and voting. That’s why it’s offering a Yes/No option, even though it’s probably the Dislike button that users will be more thrilled to get their trigger-happy fingers on instead.
