"How to get the new Facebook reaction?" This is a question that has stirred users of the social network, since Facebook announced the arrival of the "Out" reaction to express empathy in the coronavirus quarantine. The announcement was made last Friday (17) and the promise that the resource would be released starting this week. As many people have not yet received the functionality, social networks were filled with doubts on how to activate the button and requests for the reaction.

However, there is nothing you can do to activate or achieve the new Facebook reaction. O TechTudo contacted Facebook's advisory in Brazil, which confirmed that the resource is being released globally gradually by the social network. The button joins other reactions with a sense of affection and attention, being a way of expressing empathy during this difficult period.

The interest of users in the new reaction was so great that it caused an increase in searches on the subject on Google. In fact, Google Trends, a tool that monitors web searches, has registered, in recent days, a growth in searches for "how to activate a new Facebook reaction", "how to get a new Facebook reaction", "new Facebook reaction 2020" , "how to win new Facebook reaction". The peak in the polls happened last Wednesday night (29th).

As there is no way to get the new reaction, users are left to make complaints and memes on social networks. On Facebook itself, you can find posts from frustrated people because they have not yet received the reaction. In addition, some pages are conducting polls to get people to react with "Out", while others give supposed tips on how to receive the resource, which include liking the page or sharing and commenting on posts. It is worth remembering, however, that none of this works.
The new reaction also ended up on Twitter. On the social network, it is possible to see several comments from users who have not yet received the resource. Among requests and doubts on how to activate the reaction, there are also compliments and criticisms of new functionality.

The reaction of "Fora", which in English received the name "Care", was announced by Facebook as a way to express empathy and compassion during the quarantine of the coronavirus and also reached Messenger. In the case of Facebook, she is represented by a yellow face hugging a heart and joins other reactions, such as "Curtida", "Haha" and "Amei". In Messenger, the traditional red heart can be replaced by a pulsating purple heart to react to messages. For accounts that have already received the feature, it is possible to use the tool both in the desktop version and in the application for Android and iPhone (iOS) phones.

This is not the first time that Facebook has released special reactions. On Mother's Day 2016, the social network won the famous "florzinha da gratido". The success of the react was so great that many people asked for the permanence of the resource, which ended up returning the following year. In 2017, Facebook released a reaction with the LGBTQ pride flag to anyone who liked the LGBTQ @ Facebook page. In 2018, a bug triggered an airplane reaction and caused a lot of curiosity among users of the social network.
