Facebook stickersFacebook Stickers which have been popular with Facebook Messenger because of their ability to spice up their conversations are now rolling out to a wider audience.

The announcement was  made yesterday.

The stickers will be available on comments found on people’s Timeline posts, Group posts and Event posts.

To access the stickers, users tap the smiley face icon in the bottom-right of any comment field on Facebook in order to pick the sticker they want to share with the others on the thread.

“You can now easily show your excitement for a post with good news, cheer up a friend who’s feeling down, and express a variety of more nuanced reactions,” he says.

Stickers allow social networking and messaging users to engage in conversations more easily from a mobile phone since they can sum up an emotion or thought with just a picture.

That’s obviously another key area for Facebook to focus on as it continues its shift to mobile.

Enabling stickers in comments could also make scrolling through longer threads — like those on public pages — more time-consuming.

The stickers are now available to Facebook users across web and mobile, the company says.
