Washington: Facebook's famous stickers which have been a hit in the Messenger app, personal chats and group messages, can now be used in wall posts, comments and events.
The update is expected to be rolled out within the next day, according to Bob Baldwin, a Facebook engineer who worked on the project, ABC News reported.
To use the update, users just have to tap the smiley face icon in the bottom right of any comment field, choose your favorite sticker and post to your heart's content.
Baldwin said the idea was born during a hackathon - and grew into a larger project after he saw how popular it was.
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, he said.
