Because we all need a better way to say, "WE GET IT, you're engaged."

Today Facebook rolled out its new reaction buttons that go beyond just "liking" stuff. They're pretty awesome...but they don't cover every emotion we all feel on social media:

1. The "We Get It, You Have Kids"

When you should use it: When someone only posts about their baby AND their profile picture is now of their children too.
