Be careful how you use that Facebook Reaction

Culture
What's not to like when you can ha-ha and wow to your friends? I'm Bridget Carey. This is your CNET Update. [MUSIC] Hey folks. Before we begin, just wanna thank my colleagues, [UNKNOWN] and Jeff, for covering for me while I was out sick for a few days. Which I'm sure you can tell by my new and improved raspy voice. But talking in words aren't necessary anymore, right, we have Emojis to communicate all of our feelings. Well the day has finally come for all of us, the Facebook like button Is now joined by five additional reaction choices. We do not have a thumbs down, dislike option, but Facebook has now rolled out a heart to love a post, along with other emoji heads named Haha, Wow, Sad, and Angry. The new reactions are available to everyone around the world. On the app, just long press on the like and you'll see the other choices pop up. On your desktop hover your mouse over the like to choose your reaction. But before you go emotion crazy, please be thoughtful in how you use these, guys. If you're too quick you might accidentally send a haha to a sad post, and please don't wow a sad post either. In fact just write a comment to properly express your feelings like a human being. Because being human is more important than ever right now. Why? The machines are getting better at walking. Boston Dynamics now run my Alphabet has created a new generation of the Atlas robot. And a video release on YouTube shows the human with robot Walking out of an office, then taking a stroll in the snowy woods. Notice how it won't fall down, even when the snow is slippery or uneven. It also picks up ten pound boxes and puts them on shelves. But here's the most bothersome part. The researcher uses a hockey stick to mess with Atlas to show how it will stall when pushed. And then the guy starts knocking the boxes around. Why you got to be such a human bully? Don't you know this gives them reason to hate us and begin the uprising? The researcher even pushes Atlas from behind, and the robot, which weighs 180 pounds and is 5 foot 9 inches tall, is able to push itself back upright. Please, folks, don't agitate your robots, or they could just walk out on you and then roam the forests, seeking vengeance. So while the company that owns Google continues to play God, they also hired the voice of God to give GPS directions. Actor Morgan Freeman is now available to give you GPS turn by turn voice directions on Google's free traffic app Waze. It's part of a promotion for Freeman's new movie, London Has Fallen. An elite team has been assembled to guide your mission. Let's get started. You've heard him narrate films and documentaries and commercials. And now he can narrate your epic journey to find the nearest gas station. That's it for this tech news update. And there's always more at cnet.com. From our studios in New York, I'm Bridget Carey.
