Expanding the 'Like' button

Good morning everyone,

Yesterday morning I headed out for a long run and hardly sweated at all-it was kind of chilly at 6:00am, but it warmed up and turned into a nice day. Today, tomorrow and...well, all week should be pretty much the same. We'll see a mix of sun and clouds and highs in the mid-20s all week. I wonder how long this great fall weather will last...

Are you on Facebook? If you are, I'm sure there was at least one time when you 'liked' someone else's story/picture/status when you really wanted to show another emotion, right?

Something like 'sad' or 'joy' or 'wow'...well, hopefully you won't have to wait too much longer to do so.

Currently, Facebook is conducting a trial in a couple of countries using the icons below...and if everything goes smoothly, they'll be introduced globally in the not-too-distant future.
facebook emoticons

I, for one, will be happy to have some other options to express myself on Facebook. Some people have been clamoring for a 'dislike' button. Thankfully Facebook has decided to not add a specific 'dislike' button. I think it would have been a huge disaster if they had. The internet is already too full of trolls who attack other people through the anonymity of the web and giving them a 'dislike' button would be just too much.

But giving us something other than 'like' is long overdue. What do you think? Would you have included any different emoticons?

Have a great day!
