Not impressed by Facebook’s new “Reactions” options?
The company recently rolled out Reactions as a Like button alternative that gives users six emoji to express emotions like love, amusement, sadness and anger.
Facebook Reactions have only been live for a little over a week, but there’s already a fun new extension for Firefox and Chrome that lets you replace the standard emojis with Pokémon or close-up expressions of the leading Republican presidential candidate. You can even upload your own pack of reaction emoji.
But if the built-in faces don’t do it for you, a new Firefox and Google Chrome browser extension called Reaction Packs, developed by Rodney Folz, can give you other options. The extension lets you swap out Facebook’s built-in emoji with sets of custom reactions, including sets of Pokémon, Donald Trump and even Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau-themed emoji.
Simply download the plugin, and then go to its website to pick which new Reactions you want popping up on Facebook on your computer. Head back to Facebook, refresh the page, and those drab yellow smileys have been switched with images that truly capture the full spectrum of human emotion. Now if only there were a tool that took us back to the single Like option, when life was simpler.
