The Facebook stickers, which were only previously available through Messenger, will now be available through comments on Timeline, Group and Event posts.
The engineer on the project, Bob Baldwin, shared his thoughts on stickers when announcing the news on his own FB timeline,
He wrote: “Stickers have been a delightful way to communicate in messages, and I’m happy to announce we’re bringing them to comments across Facebook. Just tap the smiley face icon in the bottom-right of any comment field to pick a sticker to send.
It’ll be available to all posts from people, in groups, and on events now. I think stickers will allow people to reply to a variety of posts in a more fun way than words alone. You can now easily show your excitement for a post with good news, cheer up a friend who’s feeling down, and express a variety of more nuanced reactions.
To access the stickers, you’ll find the newly added smiley face icon in the bottom-right of any comment field on Facebook, tap it in order to pick the sticker you want to share with the others on the thread.
