7 Emoji Reactions Facebook Needs

7 Emoji Reactions Facebook Needs

This could change the Facebook-liking game!

For years, Facebook users have asked, jokingly and seriously, for a dislike button on the site. They felt that just having the 'like' was too limiting, myself included. So, to enhance the Facebook experience and make that site a little more bearable (and honest) for everybody, here are seven new reactions Facebook needs.

1. I'm Shook Reaction

Sure, we have a 'wow' reaction, but that doesn't really cover how I feel when I come across a photo or post that truly baffles me for better or for worse.

2. I'm Only Liking This So I Can Save It For Later Reaction

Let's be real, we both know I'm never going to get to it. Sure, Facebook has a 'save for later' feature, but I want people to KNOW that I'm smart and can read articles. I'll read that New York Times opinion piece, eventually...

3. I Don't Really Care About Your Big Announcement But I'm Going To Feel Guilty If I Don't Like It Reaction

(I'll think of more clever names for these reactions, I promise). Everyday someone else posts about their new relationship status, new job, or newly found political opinion and while I'm all for supporting something that makes someone happy, I also haven't talked to you in years. There is also a chance that the announcement is a paragraph long and my attention span on social media is that of a goldfish. That makes me a bad person, doesn't it...

4. Dislike Reaction

Surprise, surprise. It's 2017, why can't I tell people how I really feel about their outdated meme post?

5. I'm Sorry Reaction

Occasionally people will post sad news such as a death in the family, health issue, or natural disaster crisis, and the current 'sad' reaction seems more appropriate for a reaction to a "lost puppy" poster than something as serious as a death.

6. I Keep Liking Your Posts So You'll Notice Me Reaction

You're either someone I just met that I want to be friends with, a high school or grade school bud I'd like to catch up with but don't know how, or a crush. For being a communication major, I sure don't know how to initiate conversation.

7. Tired of Your Nonsense Reaction

Listen, I CAN ONLY TAKE SO MANY VIRAL THREAD VIDEOS THAT AUTOMATICALLY PLAY. Also, I'm all for following and engaging in politics, but if you have that much to say may I suggest starting a blog? Perhaps a Wordpress? This is also a callout at me too. I'm sure you all can handle only so many Odyssey articles on your feed.

I'm sure there are more that I missed, so let me know what honest reactions I missed!

7 Things You Do If You’re One Of Those 'I Always Order Chicken Tenders' People

It's hard to love food but also hate it at the same time.


Growing up, my mom would usually have to cook me a separate dinner from my siblings. Why? Because I was ridiculously picky and wouldn't eat the same foods as everyone else. Trust me, it gets old. It's not my fault certain things just taste gross, you learn to live with it.

1. You eat something you hate just to see if you still hate it

I'll take a bite of a burger every once in a while just to reaffirm that it still tastes like dirt. I just have to know. Don't even get me started on vegetables.

2. When trying to explain what you actually like to eat, people give you major side eye

Don't ask me about my eating habits unless you want to get into a long, confusing conversation.

3. Eating at someone else’s house when you were younger was a pain

You hate to tell their parents just how much you hate the food that they gave you. So, you sucked it up and ate it anyway only to come home and whine to your parents.

4. There’s one thing on any menu you always fall back on...even if it’s on the kids menu

Pizza, maybe. Chicken tenders, always.

5. Trying a new food is a very proud moment

It's like, wow! Look at me being all adventurous.

6. When you realize you actually like some new food, that’s an even more amazing moment

Crazy times. This rarely happens.

7. Sometimes it’s the texture, sometimes it’s the flavor, all the time it’s left on your plate

Oops. At restaurants it's either left on your plate or your order is very specified.
