How to Enable Reactions on Facebook

Facebook was recently in a lot of talks for the addition of dislike button in it’s interface. Recently Mark Zuckerberg confirmed that there is going to be nothing like a dislike button and instead there would be Facebook Reactions. According to Mark Zuckerberg reactions will help in decreasing the hate among people which would not have been possible due to a dislike button.
Reactions are kind of emojis for the posts, you have the following reactions: Like, Love, Haha, Yay, Wow, Sad and Angry.
They look really cool but as of now this feature is just restricted to users of Ireland and Spain. According to Facebook, if they enabled this feature for some other countries then the users who got this feature won’t be able to show it to their international friends. As a result of a survey it was found that people of Spain and Ireland are the most isolated ones and have the least amount of international friends which made them the perfect users to get reaction feature!
Since this announcement, everyone’s head has one question, “How to enable reactions on Facebook?” Well I have the answer to your question and with this tutorial I am going to share how you can enable reactions on Facebook even if you don’t live in Ireland or Spain. And believe me, enabling Facebook reactions is as easy as 1,2 and 3.
