Facebook tests posting stickers in comments

Facebook has confirmed that it is currently testing the option to post stickers while commenting on a post. Select users have been using the stickers in comments section for testing, though no details have been given about a global rollout.  

Now users will be able to add stickers in comments is similar to the way they do in the Facebook Messenger app. The sticker button is placed in the comment bar besides the camera button. When a user clicks on the sticker button, he would be able to see a number of default stickers as well as other sticker packs purchased by the user. The stickers have been only Facebook Messenger exclusive until now.

A Facebook spokesperson stated, “We are running a test which allows you to add a sticker to a comment on Facebook. Simply tap the sticker to add it to the comment, in the same way you would in Messenger".

Facebook has updated its messenger app for the Windows Phone last week. The update allows users to send emoticons from within the updated Facebook Messenger app. Users can access the feature via a dedicated button on the navigation bar.

Facebook is also testing a 'Satire' tags to avoid confusion on its news feed. Facebook stated that they started testing 'Satire' tags after getting received feedback that people wanted a clearer way to distinguish between articles. A Facebook spokesperson confirmed: "We are running a small test which shows the text “[Satire]" in front of links to satirical articles in the related articles unit in News Feed. This is because we received feedback that people wanted a clearer way to distinguish satirical articles from others in these units."
