Turns out Facebook will indeed go all out for Mother’s Day this year. If you thought cats and flowers stickers recently reported on the topic would enjoy all emotional, Facebook has a little more. Twitter user Sreedev Sharma spotted a ‘Flower’ reaction show up icon that appears temporarily replace the “Yay” and “confused” reaction options emoji on Facebook.
The Verge has confirmed the same with Facebook commenting, “In celebration of Mother’s Day”, we test the ability for people in some markets to let a flower of reaction, “The company said in a statement.”
This also happens to be the first time the company offered a temporary reaction. From now on, it is difficult to know where Facebook will make emoji reaction flowers available. The source also confirmed that the US will not be on this list.
As for what happens after Mother’s Day? Well, Facebook seems to have thought of that too. The flower temporary reaction will simply not be available after the passage of the day. But reactions will continue to appear on the old messages wherever they were added.
The social media giant announced earlier that he wants to celebrate Mother’s Day with all women around the world by releasing new stickers and flowers. The icon of the flower will be available between 7 and 9 May.
