Social media giant Facebook has been working on the feature for a few months and at the moment, non-employees can only see the “love” reaction, but there are six more that could be made available at launch. There’s no telling when the feature would see a public release but as mentioned that Facebook’s Tech Comm Manager has affirmed the feature, you shan’t wait too long.
