How to React to Facebook Comments on Website and App

Last Updated: May 4, 2017

Facebook rolled out reactions to posts last year(2016). They introduced 6 reactions which were Like, Wow, Love, Sad, Anger and Haha. With these, users got the freedom to react to posts instead of just liking them. Of course, they made a lot of sense as not everything that you see on Facebook has to be liked. For example, when users posts about their accident, it doesn’t seem nice to like it. Now, the same is true for comments. If you were forced to like a comment even though it made you laugh like crazy then you no longer have to. As Facebook has rolled out the same six reactions for comments too. In this article, we quickly let you know how to react to Facebook comments on the website and Android or iOS app.
