Facebook announced this morning that it has begun rolling out a new emotion selection feature on its status box. Users can select between a full list of emotions or share what they are watching, listening to, reading, drinking or eating.
The new tool is only available in the US at the moment and the complete roll-out is expected to take several days. Facebook says that it wants to funnel conversations a bit to better convey what a user is doing, thinking or feeling.
Facebook wants you to actively link to an artist, food brand or even brewery when composing your status in hopes of drumming up more marketing revenue when those pages see increased traffic from your status updates.
