Halloween Facebook Reactions

 

In Loving Memory

Original Facebook Reactions

February 24, 2016 – October 27, 2016

Original Facebook Reactions crossed over to a new, hidden internet world on October 27, 2016, at just 246 days old. By giving birth to a new set of reactions, Original Facebook Reactions found its life ending. Though its time with us was short, it was certainly meaningful. It brought a new way to engage with the world and its legacy will not be forgotten.

Original Facebook Reactions is survived by its newborn child, Halloween Facebook Reactions. Upon its final moments, Original Facebook Reactions is said to have uttered, “Remember, not all that die will go forever unseen… anything can happen on Halloween…” With that, Original Facebook Reactions took its final breath. May it rest in peace.

Well – you heard it from Uptick first! Facebook has given us quite a treat – new Halloween Facebook reactions! If you are someone who was less than pleased by the addition of Facebook’s reactions, and generally stick to the classic “Like,” do yourself a favor and hover over the like just a little longer today. You will see a witty witch, an amazed apparition, a forlorn Frankenstein, and a provoked pumpkin! We are certain these aren’t here to stay, so use them while you can!

Facebook Live

Uptick has long anticipated the addition of Snapchat-like lenses, but we weren’t expecting to get them at such an epic time! Today, Facebook has updated Facebook Live to include fun lenses, or as Facebook calls them, ‘masks,’  just in time for Halloween! There’s a unicorn, a skeleton, and evil witch vampire queen thing… you get the picture! Go try them on for yourself!
