 Facebook Reactions are coming to virtual reality

Since buying the virtual reality company Oculus, maker of the Oculus Rift, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has made it very clear that the acquisition wasn't simply an experiment, but an investment in the company's future.
Recently, Facebook doubled down on that sentiment by enhancing one of its central features. Now you can add Reactions (those animated emoji on Facebook) to Facebook 360 videos when using Gear VR.
In order to see or create the Reactions, users will need update their Oculus Video app and connect to their Facebook accounts. Sure, the update may seem like a small one, but after Likes, Reactions have become the coin of the realm when it comes to responding to posts, so expanding the reach of Reactions into VR could be important.
The company introduced 360-degree videos to the Facebook community late last year, with a focus on video content, and introduced 360 Photos earlier this month.  
According to a company spokesperson, Gear VR users will also be able to add Reactions to 360 Photos in virtual reality in the coming weeks.
