Facebook Stickers can now be Used In Comments

If you're a Facebook junkie, this might be one of the happiest days in your online life.

Facebook has just announced its stickers you're oh, so fond of are no longer limited to being used in messages. The expanded use of the stickers extends to your Timeline, other Facebook pages and groups, as well as Events.

The emoji-like icons have been in the Messenger app so Facebook decided to let it be used outside Messenger.

Only a few stickers will be available outside the limits of messaging, however. The stickers work the same way as before. Users can actually buy in-app stickers from the Facebook Sticker Store if they want to use more.

The stickers belong to certain groups or themes such as movies, sports teams and even popular games. An example is the adorable minions in Despicable Me 2.

"I think stickers will allow people to reply to a variety of posts in a more fun way than words alone. 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," said Facebook engineer Bob Baldwin in a Facebook post.

Alright Facebook patriots, comment away!
