Police Warns Facebook Users To Stop Using Reactions 

No doubt, Facebook is the best medium to stay in touch with your close ones and to stalk those who don't want to stay close to you. Liking, Commenting, and Sharing are good ways to express yourself but what about the plethora of stupid posts on Facebook? People desperately wanted a dislike button in order to truly express their emotions. For quite obvious reasons, it couldn't be done.

Anyway, Facebook released a new functionality called "Reactions" which is a step up from the traditional "Like" button and allows users to choose from a range of emotions to express their thoughts on a post. Although lots of users have welcomed this feature, Belgian police have warned the Facebook fans that they shouldn't use this feature if they wish to protect their privacy.

Read on to know more about it.

Personally, I don't have a problem with Facebook gathering my likes and dislikes. I just hope they use it to filter idiotic posts from my wall.

Yay! I did my part.

Yay! I did my part.

When only 'Likes' could feed the hungry and save so many lives, imagine how much more we could help the world by using these buttons. :P

Possible future?

We'll definitely use these more than the reactions.

Who needs a dislike button when you have the option to not give a fuck at all.
