Facebook And That Little Flower Reaction

Social media is all about sharing, discussion, and feedback. In general, social media services will always feature allowing users to comment, saying exactly what they think. There are, however, often simpler ways to express your opinion on a given post – a “like” feature. Be it Instagram, Facebook, Google+, Ello, or even YouTube,  there are …
