    Starting on Wednesday, Facebook users will be able to “Wow,” “Haha” or “Love” photos and status updates.

    Move over, "Like" button. There are more ways now to express emotions on Facebook. 

    The social media giant is rolling out its new "Reactions" feature on Wednesday that will allow 1.6 billion users worldwide to "Wow," "Haha" or "Love" friends' photos and status updates.

    The other animated buttons in the set of five are "Sad" and "Angry" and are sure to get tons of use, especially during this election cycle. 

    The change comes after years of people saying they wanted to be able to do more than just "like" posts on Facebook. 

    Mobile users will have to upload to the most recent version of Facebook on Android or iOS as the new feature rolls out over the next few days.
