Facebook recently introduced the new like buttons.


They will allow Facebook to gather even more data from its users and to better monetize them, but what effect do you think it will have for social media marketers?

Do you already have some ideas how to utilize them?

    I personally like the “new like buttons.” I definitely was one that hated the like only option from the start. But I find myself using Like, Love and Haha more than the others. It would be interesting to find out if it actually helped increase the participation as compared to just having the like.

    Enjoy your day,

    Liudas, I really like them because we can learn more what and why people are liking our stuff on Facebook. Hopefully we can learn more how or what to post better on the biggest social network. I think they are fun to use as well.

    Hey Liudas,
    For every change made by any website behemoths like Facebook or Google, there is expectation that users and the platforms would enjoy a WIN WIN situation! At least, this is what I think.

    After some research, I think Facebook has come up with the new like buttons to explore better interactions and user experience.

    For social media marketers this move is sure to improve engagements, generate leads and attract convertible traffic.

    However, I am of the opinion that the real impact for any social media marketer would be felt if already the site as solid traffic base!

    I love them for several reasons.

    1. When someone leaves you a reaction other than a like, it shows they took extra time to respond to your post.

    2. You can research anyone’s public posts to see how other’s feel about it (lots of competitor research opportunities here).

    3. You can find out what people really think of your ads.

    Hello Liudas,

    I like the new Facebook like buttons because it’s nice to be able to express your feelings. When it was only the like button it was hard. Sometimes you didn’t always want to click the like button because you didn’t actually like an article or post. Now, you have more options. A friend of mine shared a video and it was really sad. So, I was able to use the sad button.

    I think it will definitely help with more participation on Facebook.

    I’m sure they already have a process to gather data from this. Emotion will be a big part next time but right now, I just think they are gathering data for testing as well as giving the next best thing to the “dislike” button. LOL

    Hello Liudas, I was so surprised when I noticed them YEHA!

    Not everything is Like-able and that was the only choice we had.

    Funny though just as Elton has stated above I am still mostly using the Like Button HEHE

    I will have to give this one a little more thought!!

    Great Share

    Good discussion post. I made this comment in a similar post here on Kingged some minutes ago. As this is the same topic, here’s the comment I made:

    I think it’s still too early to tell about these new reactions.

    From what I hear most people are still using the same like button they were previously using, somewhat ignoring the other love, anger, sadness, “wow,” and “haha” buttons.

    It could be that they can’t just be bothered or change is still hard, or as is always the case, they are in a hurry and it’s just easier to click the usual “like” button and be on their way to another post, video or whatever else they usually do online.

    Marketers will likely benefit a lot from these new reactions, as they get new insight into how users really feel about their content and brand.

    It’s good though that these new reactions won’t change the algorithms, as confirmed by Facebook. But maybe that will change when they have data to work with.

    What would have changed the algorithm right away would be if Facebook unveiled the much talked about “dislike” button.

    Talking about the dislike button, let’s wait and see when or if Facebook will ever unveil it. That’s the button that will get everyone talking, particularly marketers.

    Hey Liudas,
    This is a good discussion post and one that every Facebook marketer should care about.

    The newly introduced like buttons could be interactive and help marketers to be more engaging.

    The real effect on social media marketers is hinged on better understanding of what the marketer is feeling than what obtains in the previous like button.

    In others words, Facebook just added some bit of “human” feeling on the platform!

    The new Facebook like button is a welcome development. With the image-like characters or symbols engagements will become more meaningful!

    I don’t know if this is going to affect monetization in anyway. Only time will tell.

    For now, I am for better engagements and expression that would lead to better relationship.

    Hopefully, the full benefit of these buttons would be expressed in the shortest time possible!

    Hi Liudas,

    I am a fan of the ‘like’ buttons on Facebook. After the introduction of the ‘new’ buttons, I have seen my engagement sort of increased for the positive.

    Thus, I would remark that the new Facebook like buttons have been phenomenal. They readily help portray the feelings of the user for better understanding!

    I rarely use these new like buttons from Facebook.

    However, from the reports I have listened to and from the details of the testimonials I have gotten, the Facebook like buttons seem to help engagement.

    I guess it would be wise using it for real!

    Hi Liudas,

    The new Facebook like buttons is now acceptable by many people. Personally, I don’t use it very much but its sure a handy tool for improved interaction.

  • Profile photo of James Ling Profile

    The effect of these new Facebook like buttons for social media marketers is that they now have increased interactive system. The buttons readily express the mindset of the visitor and this is good for target marketing!

    I love the new like buttons. They are quite expressive and readily shows the mind of the user.

    Hopefully, Facebook is going to sustain it for a long time!

  • Profile photo of Paul Profile

    My take is that it is still too early to know its benefits. The idea is welcoming especially as it will make it easy for Facebook uses to express their views!

    Hi Liudas,

    I have read this post and listened to comments made on this. I want to completely align my thoughts with those of @sunday.

    These changes introduced by Facebook are sure to increase better interactions, engagements, for improved user experience and lead generation in social media marketing!
