LinkedIn just added reactions

It's weird that I haven't seen an article about this while curating News You Can Use, but LinkedIn now has reactions!
-Like
-Celebrate
-Love
-Insightful
-Curious

Curious. Is there any significance to these? Linkedin has always seemed like the social media site for the serious-minded. Is this to draw in the millennial crowd, perhaps? I'm sure I'm missing something…

This is a surprise. I think they're missing a "disappointed" or "bad news" reaction, although I understand the reluctance of social media platforms to make it easy for people to be negative. @brendanmcadams you could be right about broadening the LinkedIn appeal.

I like this. We’ve been trying to do more with LinkedIn and understanding what our followers like or don’t like is very helpful.

I was also surprised there was no negative reaction. It will be interesting to see how these play out.

Maybe it's a subtle way of saying "if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all." Interesting!

Might be nice if certain other platforms followed their lead on this idea! LOL

Oh my gosh, @bethdavidson. You are totally channeling my dad. I can't tell you how many times I heard that as a kid. As an adult, I find it some of the best advice I've ever received. How different would Twitter be if this was the general rule for human interaction?
