Facebook’s “like” button isn’t going away, but it’s about to get some company.
Facebook has been testing alternatives to “like” in about a half-dozen countries. Starting on Wednesday, the social network has made the other responses — “love,” “haha,” “wow,” “sad” and “angry” — available in the U.S. and the rest of the world.
In changing a core part of Facebook, the company says it tried to keep things familiar. The thumbs-up “like” button will look just as it long has, without the other choices cluttering the screen or confusing people. You have to hold that button for a second or two for the alternatives.
The rollout is expected to take a few days. You’ll get the feature automatically on Web browsers, but you’ll need to update your app on iPhones and Android devices.
