Facebook is preparing its own present for the upcoming Mother’s Day. The social network is currently testing several special features for the holiday, including a new reaction and a feature that lets you decorate your messages in the Messenger with flowers. Both features will appear only for a limited time.
The new “flower” reaction will appear alongside the five main reactions on Facebook. This is actually the first time Facebook is adding a temporary reaction and if it works we can expect special reactions to appear for other holidays as well.
In the Facebook Messenger, you will see the flower button next to the compose window. Simply tap on the icon and the next message or photo will be decorated with flowers. Furthermore, Facebook has prepared the Mother’s Day-themed sticker pack for its messenger.
The flower reaction is being tested in several countries and will be rolled out by May 7, although it is still not clear in which countries it will be available as Mother’s Day is celebrated on different dates across the world.
