In the past, users on Facebook have reacted to newsfeed posts, with either just a like, or commenting.
Not so long ago, Facebook added reactions, like laughing, love, and angry emoticons.
This has lately become a serious problem, with “people” (or bots?) inappropriately reacting to news posts, using laughing emojis. Especially, serious news posts of people suffering and dying, during this pandemic.
Facebook needs to step in, and add an option to disable this feature!
Currently, there is no way to disable this by users, and actually hurts efforts to combat misinformation (laugh reactions create impression, some news is not serious).
