Help us spread the news!

We have covered Facebook’s reactions in quite a few posts recently. As a site that discusses tools and ways for your users to “react” and engage with your content, Facebook reactions are a great example of where the internet should be moving in terms of user experience.

For those that haven’t heard the news about Facebook’s new emotion reactions:

 

Facebook recently released their new “Reaction” buttons as a way to provide  more nuanced response system than a simple “like”.

The Facebook Reactions offer a wider range of emotional responses for with 6 choices (5 new) Like, Love, Haha, Wow, Sad, Angry.

 

Facebook’s “emoji like” reaction design:

The reactions are only available for now for Facebook users in Ireland and Spain. now available globally!

 

So you might be wondering,

How do I add Facebook reactions to my website?

Unfortunately -unlike Facebook’s comment system -there is no way currently to add this FB tool to your site.

In one of my previous posts, I discussed a great substitute plugin you can add to your as a WordPress site here.

However, for those who don’t have a wordpress site, or want more control than a wordpress plugin over the material added to the site, there is a way to get this tool also as a html code.

 

What is the tool?

 

Vicomi Feelbacks 

Try it out:

 

Vicomi Feelbacks, like the Facebook buttons, offer a variety of emotions which your users simply click on to react to your content.

 

Have a post that shocks your users? At the bottom of the article your users can then select the “Wow” emoji from the 5 options and easily tell you what they are feeling. Like the Facebook Reaction Buttons, Feelbacks provides more options for your users than a simple “like”, while still remaining simple and fun to use.

 

To add it to your site, you can get your free html code by registering on their website, here.

 

You can then choose from a variety of languages and design options.

A few examples of design themes here:
