Just a little over a month after Facebook added reactions to Messenger, the same feature has now extended to comments. Because why bother commenting on a comment when you can just click the “Heart” emoji? What is communication even? Words? What are those? (Insert “Haha” emoji here.)
Unlike the implementation on posts and Messenger, the emoji seem to crowd and overlap a bit especially as more reactions are added. To add a reaction, just hover over the Like button and see your default options of six. Unlike the Messenger’s mobile implementation, there is no animation after you click a reaction button.

It seems the feature started rolling out today on the desktop version of Facebook, so if you don’t see it yet, you will soon. No words on when it will arrive on mobile. Either way, prepare your eyes.
