A browser extension for Chrome and Firefox allows users to swap emojis for Pokemon and Donald Trump. The extension, called Reaction Packs, allows users to choose the reaction pack they want for Facebook, and replace the default emojis used on the website. Of course, while the image changes, the reactions can’t be extended beyond Facebook’s default Like, Love, HaHa, Sad, Angry and Wow. There’s also a set of emoji packs themed on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
It's worth noting that while the emojis on Facebook Reactions will change, your friends will still see the default emojis that have been chosen by Facebook. To use the extension, you need to install it, then choose a emoji pack from the Reaction Packs website. You then need to referesh your Facebook page and when you hover over the Like button, you will gain access to the new emojis.
Facebook Reactions was launched recently, adding to the social network’s ‘Like’ feature. It allows users to respond with more than just a ‘like’, adding the emotions mentioned above. Facebook chose a bunch of default emojis to represent the various emotions. The extension to the Like feature had been in the works for a while, with Facebook Founder and CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, saying, back in September, that the company may introduce a dislike button.
Facebook has also said that it will use the Reactions feature to track user behaviour in order to aid the social network in ad delivery. “We will initially use any Reaction similar to a Like to infer that you want to see more of that type of content,” stated Facebook in a blog post.
