Enjoy reacting hug to your friends’ messages! Now can I expect your messenger full of pulsating heart reactions? Well, its time to send virtual hugs!
Facebook has been rolling out new reactions on both Facebook and Messenger slowly so do not get worried if you do not see the new reactions. The “Thankful” reaction introduced by Facebook was rolled out to few users than Facebook rolled out “Care” reaction and “Hug” reaction this time. It might be soon enabled on your Facebook account.
I think we need a hug reaction to be enabled for the Facebook app too. What do you think? Yes. We already have a love react but pulsating heart reaction looks nice for me. Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
