Your own posts will show up like so...
Obviously you can not react to yourself!
Posts you have reacted to will show up as so
Your reaction is on the bottom, the most common reaction is at the top.
How to react
When you click the bottom icon
You will get a selection of all the current smilies we have set as a reaction

Once you do one of those the post will update and show you what you reacted with and the current top reaction
Hovering over the top reaction icon or the top reaction will show you either of these.
All reactions to the post or that it has none.
