Whilst it's a breeze to press the Like button to Like a post, I find trying to use it on iOS to select other reactions (such as HaHa) to be roughly on par with trying to heard 17 Cats who have had their cat food laced with Adderall...

Am I pressing it wrong?

What iOS? On iOS 13, pressing and holding for a second makes it up up easily.

I’ve seen other people mention it but it’s hard for me to reproduce.

Try clicking to the left of the button? Closer to the thumbs up icon? Or zoom in a bit?

See if that helps.

That's what I end up doing, and sometimes it's easy, other times I give up and go for a simple Like, despite me wanting another reaction .

Would it be possible to make the text an image to stop iOS from wanting to select it?

I'm still having major issues with this using Safari. I just spent a minute trying to do something other than "Like" a post.

What is the secret I'm apparently missing here?

I didn’t know about this. Works every time for me on iPadOS.

& just tested it on IOS, where it also worked fine.
