12 Facebook Reactions We Actually Need In Our Lives Right Now

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

Posted on

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:

2. The "I Want To Sleep With You"

When you should use this: When you don’t care at all what someone’s status says, you are only focused on their hotttttt shirtless profile pictures.

3. The "Push To Start Drama"

When you should use this: When you are six months deep into someone’s timeline and have ended up on their friend’s pages to learn more, and you know that passive-aggressively using this reaction will send a notification and start something up. Oops!

6. The "We Get It, You're Engaged"

When you should use it: When that one person is giving constant updates about their wedding dress fitting, the type of cake they're serving at their reception, and whether or not to use a certain photographer for the ceremony, and you STILL can't catch a date on Tinder for your life.

7. The "Trophy Or Medal?"

When you should use it: When that one person posts an update about how "they normally never post this type of stuff" but they're like, having a charity bake sale or helped an old lady across the street and they think they're suddenly worthy of being canonized.

9. The "We Get It, You Work Out"

When you should use it: When that person from your office posts ANOTHER sweaty CrossFit picture, and you just want to be able to scroll through your Newsfeed in your sweats while eating Ben & Jerry's from the pint in peace.

11. The "I Secretly Enjoy Your Political Rants"

Charlotte Gomez / BuzzFeed

When you should use this: When you see ANOTHER person post a link from The Onion about Bernie or Trump thinking it's real, but you just really want to get back to looking at cute cat pictures.

12. And finally, the "I Hadn't Thought About You Since High School"

Charlotte Gomez / BuzzFeed

When you should use it: When you're scrolling through your Newsfeed, and come across that person who was in your junior English class, and then you go down a deep social media dive and realize they're engaged with twins on the way. Wait, who is this person again?
