Facebook Just Extended Reactions to Comments

Users who have access to the new feature can hover over the like button on comments and choose their Reaction

Facebook Reactions now have a new home, as the social network added the ability for users to respond to comments with like, love, haha, wow, sad and angry.

Users who have access to the new feature can hover over the like button on comments and choose their Reaction.

A Facebook spokesperson said in an emailed statement:

We’ve heard from people that they’d like more ways to show their Reaction in conversations on Facebook, so we’re rolling out the ability to react to comments.

The social network launched Reactions as an extension of its like button in February 2016, and the feature was added to its Messenger application in March.

Facebook announced in February that Reactions had been used more than 300 billion times in the first year since their launch.
