As it turns out as you may have gathered from the title, Reactions have proven to be popular on Messenger, with Facebook reporting that over two billion Messenger Reactions have been sent within the first two months of their availability. To put this into even more perspective Reactions have been used 300 billion times in the first year, that on average would be around 25 billion uses per month. So, Messenger Reactions are not quite at the same pace as Facebook’s main app yet. But the use case is of course different – there are already on average 4 million likes submitted per minute on Facebook, whereas Likes have not been available within Messenger in the same form before.
To mark the milestone, Facebook shared the following infographic which breaks down Messenger Reactions use, including the most popular reactions by country, the most frequently used Reactions in different exchanges and usage amongst demographic groups.
