The goal is to allow users of the social network and messaging app to be able to express support more easily.
Facebook announced it will soon launch a new reaction for users of the social network to use in the comments and Messengers messaging app. This is the seventh reaction that, on Facebook, will be an emoji grabbing a heart and, on Messenger, a pulsating purple heart.
But what does this new reaction mean? “We are launching new reactions on Facebook and Messenger as a way to allow people to express their support with others in this unprecedented era. We hope that these reactions will offer people a to show their support during this Covid -19 crisis, “said communications executive of Facebook, Alexandru Voica.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, news about the spread of the new coronavirus has been followed, with an excessive sharing of stories – of infected people and health professionals – that have aroused the compassion of internet users. With this reaction, Facebook hopes to offer a way for users to express that support.
