Facebook’s alternatives to liking


When I use Facebook I can see buttons:

  • Like
  • Love
  • Haha
  • Wow
  • Sad
  • Angry

Are the alternatives to liking the same for everyone using Facebook (in every region, in every device)?

"Confused" one day vanished. What happened to it?

I saw some news articles that included "Yay". How come I don't have "Yay"?

The Verge: Facebook's Like button will soon have these emoticon alternatives, says report

Facebook is testing alternatives to the Like button. The key word here is: "testing".

I'm sure they're doing A/B testing to see what works best. It doesn't surprise me at all that some have changed or disappeared. They're testing it, after all.

The test was originally set for Ireland and Spain and from what I can see has not expanded to other countries. I also don't see any sort of announcement as to when they might end the testing or roll this out more widely.
