The social media juggernaut on Tuesday morning unveiled a very small change that is making HUGE waves online: they are now referring to “favorites” as “likes,” and replacing the well-known star with a heart!
As to be expected with absolutely anything that ever changes on social media, no matter how big or small, users are all over it!
Ch-ch-check out some of the best (and worst) reactions to the new roll out of “likes” (below)!
First, many users were up in arms over the change!
