If you're on Facebook, you’ve probably noticed the new emojis you can use to express your feelings in reaction to a post. For those of you who don't know: Before, you could only "like" a post. But now you can also express anger, sadness, shock and love, too.

Advertisers mine these emojis to find out what you like and don’t like. What you may not have expected is that someone else studies your Facebook reactions —law enforcement.
Journalist Ali Winston reported on the new emojis for the Center for Investigative Reporting. He spoke with KALW's Hana Baba.
