A browser extension offers a new approach to getting younger people to inform themselves and take action on world issues

With all the problems the world faces today and the great amount of information at our fingertips, it can be difficult to know how we can be more involved in the betterment of our society. So much news circulates every day, we may not even know how to react to it. The Emoji Reaction Project wants to extend a hand to younger people who want to get involved but don’t know where to start.

The Emoji Reaction Project is a browser extension that provides ways for users to get involved simply by using a reaction emoji. Using Facebook, the technology recognizes an angry or sad emoji you have added to a relevant post, and it will then send you links to information on how to support that particular cause. Issues that this program is able to pinpoint range from affordable housing to gun control and climate change. The hope is not only to make it easier for younger people to make a difference, but also to inspire their passion by allowing them to communicate concerns with emotion.
