A classic standby, this symbol should be used liberally. Someone appropriately waited out a cold without antibiotics, a friend discharge from the hospital, a baby in a car pictured in the appropriate car seat: thumbs up!
This symbol should be reserved for truly impressive posts such as: “I listened to my doctor” or “My nurse is the best, and deserves a raise.” Anything with the words “baby vaccinated.”
This reaction can be used two ways: to express genuine excitement or complete amazement. For example, someone finds a new drug for cancer: Wow! Or patient with a non-urgent condition complaining about ED wait time. And took an ambulance to get there: also wow!
This new emoticon is meant to be used for all Vaguebooking. Examples include: Please send prayers during this hard time. Ugh! Worst. Day. Ever. Wondering if it’s all worth it.
Last, but not least, is the perfect reaction to 99% of your friends’ medical and pseudoscience related posts. Anything that includes the words “Jenny McCarthy,” “Dr. Oz,” or “gluten” automatically qualifies for an angry face. The poster may then defriend you, which calls for a big fat kissy wink face! 😘
