Some Facebook users are now able to add stickers when posting comments on the social network. We contacted Facebook to learn more, and the company confirmed it is currently testing the new feature.
“We are running a test which allows you to add a sticker to a comment on Facebook,” a Facebook spokesperson told TNW. “Simply tap the sticker to add it to the comment, in the same way you would in Messenger.”
For the rest of Facebook users, stickers are only available on Facebook Messenger on mobile or Facebook Chat on the website. If the company sees metrics it likes, stickers in comments will presumably roll out to everyone.
