The social media analytics provider quintly just published a Facebook Reactions study analyzing 130,000 posts. The analytics company revealed that Facebook Reactions are hardly used by now. Looking at the total share Reactions are just 3% of all received interactions. As well as that, the study shows that the “Love” emoji is predominantly used compared to other options. Different page clusters make the findings applicable for every marketer on Facebook. 

The findings of our study show that Facebook Reactions are not established yet. For marketers it will be interesting to see if they will do, as they can reveal great insights on how a brand’s content is perceived. This knowledge can greatly improve the businesses content marketing effectiveness,

To make the study easy to understand, quintly went step by step deeper into the analysis. First, Reactions got compared to Shares and Comments to identify whether they are already important for companies or other interactions are still of higher value. After splitting up the analyzed Facebook pages into different sized groups, quintly looked at post types such as image or video posts.

This study presents that Facebook Reactions are hardly used by the average Facebook user yet. It will be particularly interesting to see how the use of reactions will develop in the near future. For marketers, the information that can be gathered from Reactions would be highly beneficial since the deeper user understanding can help to further enhance posted content.
