A ray of sun came through my bedroom window lighting up the whole room. Stretching lazily, I was trying to work out what day of the week it was. Monday? Nooooo…when you weak up on a Monday you simply know it’s Monday,
no other morning of the week feels as crap…
“It’s Wednesday Nat” – whispered the slowly reawakening conciousness.
A minute and thirty two seconds later I was fully aware of the Wednesday, my 12 o’clock meeting in Bower Ashton and the 7 hour shift at work after.
I was ready for this Wednesday. I had my notes, my notebooks, my apron, my bus ticket and my headphones. Nothing was going to surprise me today. With everything ready and in place I was happy to find the extra 15 mins for my morning coffee, rollie and little Facebook sesh!
Ready for everything me turned on my laptop, logged in to my Facebook and…
“Not ready for this, were we?!” – mocked me my conciousness.
Yes…WOW, WOW, WOW, this happened:
We’ve been waiting for a long time. Some with excitement, some with fear. But they are finally here and IT’S HUGE! I mean, I think it’s huge…it’s my blog, so what the hell, I can say whatever I want! IT. IS. HUGE.
Facebook introduced “Reactions” – expanded options for our beloved Like button, a whole bunch of emotional reactions, which you can use to tell people how you feel exactly about a particular post.
This morning Facebook has brought the promise of greater engagement and changed the ways, in which this engagement will be measured and interpreted.
With the appearance of Reactions, Facebook evolves from a fairly safe for brands space to a space, in which anyone can express outrage with a click! However, it also evolves into a platform allowing brands to gain a more in-depth understanding of their audiences, collect more detailed data and engage in much more meaningful conversations.
How exciting is this?!
Well, I think it’s a hell of a deal, and I can not wait to see how it works out for everyone.
What are your thoughts on Facebook’s new Reactions? Let me know!
Have a great Wednesday…oh, wait, Thursday!
