Facebook already has this feature and when you don’t want to post a comment or simply like a post, you can react by simply using the emoji reactions icon. Also, one can use a heart reaction or laugh or sad reaction. Recently, Facebook also added a hug emoji to the list of reactions. 

LinkedIn also added a similar kind of feature and it has been quite popular on the professional networking platform. 

Twitter had earlier given the option to few users to turn off replies to their tweets, and now with this tweet reactions feature, all the users would be able to post a reaction to the tweet without having to post a comment under it. 

Well, this emoji reaction can be less hurtful when users and readers do not agree with the post. Also, the micro-blogging site had also launched a new feature a while ago in which users could react to DMs using the emojis.
