Facebook rolls out new ‘Thankful’ reaction for Mother’s Day

Facebook has begun rolling out a new emoji reaction – a digital cute purple flower for Mother’s Day. The reaction, which says ‘Thankful’ when your cursor is on it, is likely to stay for a limited time.

This handy little emoji adds some sweetness to greetings for mom on Mother’s Day. Even if the emoji does not stay, the Thankful reaction will still appear with the posts where it has been used.

“To celebrate Mother’s Day, we are testing the ability for people in a few markets to leave a flower reaction,” said a Facebook Inc statement.
