Sep 17, 2020 · Doximity Insider

Clinicians all across the United States come to the Doximity newsfeed to learn about new research, clinical breakthroughs, and industry news. It has become an essential way to seamlessly get updates on your colleagues and classmates and to learn more about the issues that most matter to you.

Over the past few years, our members have told us they’d like more ways to react to information on the Doximity newsfeed. We’ve listened, and after an initial rollout, we’re now proud to announce Doximity Reactions are available to all users on the Doximity mobile app (iOS and Android) as well as Doximity desktop. An extension of the ‘like’ button, Reactions give you more options to express your feelings about a post quickly and easily.

The new Reactions are: ‘applaud’, ‘love’, ‘skeptical’, and ‘sad.’

To add a Reaction, simply tap the thumb button to see the Reaction emoji options, then choose either ‘applaud’, ‘love’, ‘skeptical’, ‘sad’, or the traditional ‘like.’


Our members are already using Reactions to express themselves. A touching article about the trials and tribulations of being a med school student was the most “Loved” article from August:
