Facebook is well known for expressing its solidarity with those affected by dreadful events. The social network was made with the purpose of making people feel comfortable, respected and safe while using it. While so many people around the world are struggling against the COVID-19 pandemic in one way or another, Facebook decides to bring a new way for users to show their support towards each other.
The famous social network already began these days to roll out a new type of reactions or emojis – as you like to call them. Therefore, besides the classical ‘like’, ‘haha’, ‘love’, ‘sad’ and ‘angry’, users now also have a ‘care’ reaction.
Show your support via Facebook
It’s obvious that the measure helps a lot those affected by the COVID-19. People need to feel support from others, and an emoji can say more than a thousand words. A Facebook executive announced the new reactions by saying:
We’re launching new Care reactions on @facebookapp and @Messenger
as a way for people to share their support with one another during this unprecedented time.
We hope these reactions give people additional ways to show their support during the #COVID19 crisis.
The new emoji shows a little guy holding a heart to his chest, which is a great idea for showing support and encourage people to share empathy with each other.
If you’re not already among the lucky Facebook users to see the new reaction available on your Messenger and the Facebook app itself, there’s no need to panic! There’s only a week left until all Facebook users will see the new great way of showing their support towards those affected by the ongoing pandemic.
While the COVID-19 disease keeps spreading around the world, we can be sure that the new Facebook reaction will be massively used. Stay home and save lives by ‘reacting’ on Facebook!
