Any bit of news or information posted on a social network platform triggers instant reactions. Maybe that exactly is the reason why we post a status, or share a link or upload a picture on the social forum. It is all about getting reactions. Taking account of this, Facebook introduced its interesting 'React' feature almost a year ago. It provides a more toned down option of expressing reactions in five additional categories, 'Haha', 'Love', 'Sad', 'Angry', 'Wow'. Apart from this, you can anyway click the 'Like' button to give a simple Thumbs Up on the posts. The 'React' update became an instant hit as it spread out the scope of expressing more accurate reactions on relevant posts. Official sources had revealed that the 'React' button was used for over 300 billion times from the time of its launch.
