I'm not entirely sure where they would go, but I think reactions should be in your profile activity in some way. I think reactions are most similar to votes so I would treat them the same. So do not show reactions you've given in your profile/actions, but I think reactions received would fit nicely into the "Vote Summary" tab, even though they aren't votes per se (but function similarly - maybe rename?)

I disagree with the idea.

There's difference between vote and reaction. Reaction is available to public while vote isn't. You don't get reputation or anything else by reaction.

Reaction is to show how helpful or bad the post is. Even you will get notified if someone comment with "react".

Certainly for me, one of the really nice things about reactions is that they allow for more expressive responses than simply "this is {good,bad}, for some definition of 'this' and for some definition of '{good,bad}'" without requiring a separate comment. Especially if you aren't the person who asked the question, adding a comment (and perhaps a whole comment thread), maybe long after the answer was posted, just to say "I tried this because I had the same need, and yes, it does do what OP asks for" can feel rather excessive, while an upvote doesn't communicate the why. Both have their place.
