I think I would rather enjoy emoji-reactions to posts on the Fediverse 😊
Am I alone with this?
@firstname.lastname@example.org Come to Misskey, we have that here :p
@email@example.com Reaction menu can be expanded with emotes of your choice for fast usage too.
@fribbledom i saw it mentionned a few times here, and i believe it's a feature on pleroma
@fribbledom yes 😉
@fribbledom 🤔 😲 😁
@fribbledom methinks someone was using Slack a little bit too long :-)
@fribbledom you're not alone.. I post replies with only one emoji in them quite often.
Yeah, it's just a little less "binary" than a simple like/no-like 😄
@fribbledom on one hand: getting more semantic latitude instead of that one (usually overloaded) fave/like/whatever feature would be an upgrade.
on the other: emoji reactions tend to strike me as a bit all over the place, just an unordered mass of clutter, unelegant.
maybe i’m weird but i’d rather have conversations, or at least actual words. even a short ‘this is cool’ or ‘good point’ without obligation to reply instead of that kind of one-click response.
@fribbledom without numbers of how many
@firstname.lastname@example.org it exists, just not on mastodon
@fribbledom no, I am with you
I oppose this on principle. People can't give me shit about not using emojis if they aren't available in the first place.
@fribbledom 🎅 🐲 🧠 🤧
@fribbledom You’re not alone. I like those very much on Mattermost and Slack.
@fribbledom Iirc they are (also) called reacti or sth like that.
Ah yeah and the Indieweb has em too. I seldom use this but it's definitely possible.
@fribbledom personally I think the best emoji are absent emoji
@fribbledom when Facebook introduced them, I was like "oh I see, you're trying to add a new dimension to your data collection, you evil bags of shit". But on the fediverse I would feel differently.
@fribbledom mewe let's you choose up to 4 creation emojis. Its surprisingly good but curtails a lot of potential conversation.
@fribbledom Pleroma does what Mastodon't
@fribbledom but please give us the freedom to choose from the entire emoji palette rather than choosing our emotions from a limited set of emojis.
