The social networking site Facebook has updated again. The site has expanded it’s feature of stickers to comments section in Facebook posts. So far, the stickers were only available for messages within the messenger. Now, it has been expanded to Comments in Timeline, Groups and Event Posts, from Monday.
These stickers were only available within messages can be used now in the comments section too. These will work in the same way they work in the messages. These stickers are usually based on the popular Hollywood movies and on the popular sports teams. Facebook engineer, Bob wrote on his Facebook wall that these stickers will give more fun in the comments section than the words do. Bob Baldwin, Facebook engineer said that the program of stickers is part of their hackathon scheme. He added that it was first used by their employees and they found it interesting to use. That is how it started spreading.
As of now, it is easy to use this feature in Facebook. We will have to wait and see how Facebook team will monetize it in the future, precisely when the competitors bring their stickers into market and start competition. Messaging apps like We Chat, Viber allow users to buy the stickers to use in the messenger while chatting.
