What do the emojis in the stories mean?

Our users’ uplifting stories can elicit different positive reactions. It can make you laugh, warm your heart, or inspire you. Below each submission, there is an area where you can select how the story made you feel. When a story gets enough votes with the same reaction, the corresponding emoji is used to indicate how that story is making our users feel. You can use this to view just the stories that make people feel a certain way.UPlift Someone - Emoji Reactions
