I’m sure that on Facebook (those of you who have Facebook) that you have noticed that there were changes to the emojis. This is a step in the right direction. The more ways that people can express themselves and give their feedback, the better.
While there is comment section if people would like to give more sophisticated and detailed feedback, it is important in the fast-paced internet age that there is a less time consuming way to express themselves – in a way as easy as a click. Perhaps it is laziness or slacktivism, but that is just the way things are.
I follow a lot of news pages on Facebook. Whenever there was a horrible tragedy in the news in I always wondered why people pressed like on them. Now I hope that if people see theses stories in the future, they will use the sad or angry emoji.
There will always be room for more emojis. I say good job Facebook – this is a step in the right direction. Now make the dislike emoji with a thumbs down, and I will give a full thumbs up.
