There is a very good chance that this will increase your engagement, but in some cases could complicate the process of posting things that are controversial. Often times when someone "did not like" a post, they would just not click on the Like button. Facebook's research dug deep into the comments and conversations of the billions of Facebook posts to see what comments and emojis that Facebook users were using to express emotions other than "Like" and then drilled down to find the ones that users would find most useful. They also did several focus groups and partial roll-outs of the reaction buttons to test the user experience.
