Facebook adds a ‘hug’ reaction to show care and support to people online. Parading an emoji hugging a heart, the social networking site hopes that the new reaction will make people feel more connected with their loved ones during the pandemic. The new reaction, which is scheduled to roll out next week globally on the Facebook app and website, can be used in reacting to posts, comments, images, and videos.
Meanwhile, Messenger is also updating its ‘heart’ reaction now in beating action with a bright purple color. To use, just tap and hold the ‘heart’ reaction for a while until a dialog box appears asking you to update its looks.
Messenger is rolling out a pulsating heart Reaction today so people can show extra love and care to their friends and family.
To update the reaction, you can press and hold down the heart reaction to view the new one. To change it back, press and hold the new Reaction again. pic.twitter.com/PufyOsm7zU
