Emotion in Facebook status
Facebook began testing the new sharing options in January, but only released screenshots. Now it appears the feature has been given to a much wider audience. It’s likely the beginning of a global or at least US or English language rollout. I’ve contacted Facebook for details. [Update 11am PST 4/9: Facebook says “We are rolling this out to more people in the US.” Update 11am PST 4/10: Facebook has now published a blog post detailing the new feature.] Most mentions I’ve seen of the feature have been from the United States, and many note the similarity to an old Myspace mood sharing option.
