Custom reactions give users insight and depth in their community. Why does someone press the like button anyway? Is it because they read the post? Some people like a post because they agree with it. Some people like posts give themselves exposure. A like isn’t a like isn’t a like. So why not follow that lead with reactions?
Reactions are the Norm for Social Platforms
Your community should stay relevant and fun. When growing a community, the last thing you want is to lack features. That’s why we created the free reaction extension. Many platforms allow user reactions. Reactions are now the expected norm for social platforms.
Without a doubt, the new Facebook Reactions are here to stay. Now more than two years since its introduction, Facebook users are using them more and more as they are grow accustomed to their place in the network’s digital landscape.Qunitly
A Like is Easier – Reactions Give Insight
Sure, it’s easier to like than comment. It’s easier to share than comment. But a like isn’t always enough for a user to quickly express themselves. We smile and we laugh. These reactions help express the things our faces communicate when we talk in person.
LinkedIn gives us insight into the usefulness of reactions. They realized that a like wasn’t enough. Even those who post wanted more insight into the motivation behind the like. LinkedIn believes they solved that with their reaction set. We agree.
One of the things we regularly hear from all of you is that you want more expressive ways than a ‘Like’ to respond to the variety posts you see in your feed. At the same time, you’ve also told us that when you post on LinkedIn, you want more ways to feel heard and understand why someone liked what you said.LinkedIn

Whether you want a bit of fun for a holiday like Halloween or Christmas or just want to be able to encourage members, custom reactions make your community a more welcoming place. Imagine a community dedicated to recovery who has a reaction for “Proud of You” or “One Day at a Time.” That’s powerful.
PeepSo reactions say more than a thousand likes.
