Facebook Now Has A New Emotion Selection Tool

Posted Apr 9, 2013

Facebook has added a new feature on the Facebook status box that lets you select what you are feeling, what you are watching, what you are reading, what you are listening to, what you are drinking, or what you are eating.  This feature has been in a testing mode since January.  This feature is currently available to Facebook’s U.S. based users so far.

When you select one of the Facebook emotions, you are asked to choose from a list of emotions such as happy or sad.  If you decide to select “Watching,” then you select a movie or TV show, which connects to the Page surrounding that content.  This also applies to the book that you are reading or the music that you are listening to.

What I like about this feature is that it will increase the engagement of Facebook Pages.
