Twitter Replaces Favorites With Likes

Twitter has formally remove the favorite button today, revealing another heart catch marked "like" to replace it.

On their blog, Twitter explained their reasoning:

"We are changing our star icon for favorites to a heart and we’ll be calling them likes. We want to make Twitter easier and more rewarding to use, and we know that at times the star could be confusing, especially to newcomers. You might like a lot of things, but not everything can be your favorite.

The change, which takes off today, has a craving for something Twitter is attempting to do in the wake of Jack Dorsey being placed in control to demonstrate that it, truth be told, is not dead.

It's a sad, because it feels like it’s not necessary.. The Favorite, or fav for short, is something that made Twitter remarkable, unique, and the ambiguousness of the star meant  it lent to every situation you’d need.

Meanwhile Facebook is also working on adding reactions on post. removing the normal "Like" button with Emoji reactions. This new element will allow users to express a more extensive scope of  feelings, rather than having  just the Like button. Read more about this here
