Alexandru Voicavs has said that the company knows that it is a difficult time. We wish that people will be seen supporting their friends and family. This is the new way for this. If you look at the new Care Reaction Emoji, then it is seen to be a heart, that is, to make the heart go hag. At the same time, a similar support icon is being made available in the Messenger app.

Messenger is rolling out a pulsating heart reaction today so people can show extra love and care to their friends and family. To update the reaction, you can press and hold down the heart reaction to view the new one. To change it back, press and hold the new Reaction again.

The care reaction is slated to launch globally on Facebook’s app and website sometime next week, and it can be accessed alongside the other like button reactions. A different care reaction will be coming to Facebook Messenger: a beating heart. Messenger already has a non-animated heart reaction. However, users will be given an option to switch to the new one by pressing and holding down on the default heart reaction.Facebook care emoji

These new additions are small features compared to the much bigger issues Facebook is currently facing. Recently, the tech giant announced it would start adding anti-misinformation messages to the News Feeds of people who share articles containing false information pertaining to COVID-19.

Due to the pandemic, Facebook has seen a significant increase in usage around the globe as many people stay indoors and practice social distancing. Though Facebook usage is up, the company outlined in late March that it’s being negatively affected financially due to the decrease in digital ad spending.

Earlier it was reported that Facebook company is working on the multi-functional super app in association with telecom company Reliance Jio. Through this app, users will be able to take advantage of many features including digital payment, social media, gaming, hotels, flight booking on the same platform.
