Gift a flower to your mom on Facebook this Mother's Day

Gift a flower to your mom on Facebook this Mother's Day

The social network is rolling out a couple special features for Mother's Day, including an experimental flower reaction and a feature that lets users send flowers via Messenger.

The icon will reportedly not be available in all parts of the world including the United States, however Paksitani people can celebrate Mother's Day with an optional display picture change along "Thankful" emoji.

Global Facebook users are still getting used to the addition of reactions to posts which were first trialled in Ireland and elsewhere back in October of previous year, but now the social network wants to expand from just a range of emojis.

Facebook's Reactions feature has been out for three months now; however, this is the first time the company has chose to launch a temporary reaction.

Fox News notes that Boehner's successor, Paul Ryan, on Thursday asserted that he does not share those negative views about Cruz . He also revealed he is friends and "texting buddies" with Trump and has played golf with the brash billionaire for years.

The new reactions button, a dainty purple flower icon, was seen in the Facebook's source code.

The company has added a new flower button which appears next to the text messaging box which animates your message with flowers. The statement did not specify where users will be able to click on the Flower Reaction.

It is unclear if the new "Thankful" reaction will stay or is a temporary addition to mark Mother's Day today.

Apart from it, a team of researchers are also working on a set of new reaction buttons for this Mother's Day.
