There's one Facebook button the whole of Ireland needs today

Listen up, Zuckerberg.

LAST NIGHT, FACEBOOK unleashed a range of new ‘like’ buttons on Irish users.

Now, instead of simply ‘liking’ something, you can ‘love’ something, say ‘haha’, leave a sad face and more.


What a time to be alive.

Last night, Mark Zuckerberg outlined the changes in a Facebook status.

Today we’re launching a test of Reactions — a more expressive Like button.
Reactions gives you new ways to express love, awe, humor and sadness. It’s not a dislike button, but it does give you the power to easily express sorrow and empathy — in addition to delight and warmth. You’ll be able to express these reactions by long pressing or hovering over the Like button.
We’re starting to test Reactions in Ireland and Spain and will learn from this before we bring the experience to everyone. We hope you like this – or can better express how you’re feeling!

Given last night’s absolute scenes, however, one Irish fan has pointed out to Zuckerberg that us Irish people might need another reaction button…


Mark with this test happening in Ireland is there an absolutely buzzing button because we just beat the world champions last night #coybig

You hear that, Mark?

Better get to work on that “absolutely buzzing” button immediately. (Preferably in time for the two matches on Sunday, thanks.)
