Facebook And Messenger Gets New Care Reactions Amid Coronavirus Pandemic

Social giant Facebook has introduced a care reaction that give users an additional way to show their support to other users during the coronavirus pandemic. Facebook also introduced a Pulsating Heart reaction on the Messenger app which is already available for use.

Currently, there are six reactions on Facebook; Like, Like, Love, Sad, Haha, Angry and Wow. The new Care Reaction will be the seventh reaction on the social media platform and will sit in between the 'Love' and 'Haha' reactions for additional expression. The new Care Reaction is an animated 'face emoji hugging a  heart'.


According to a Twitter post by Facebook's EMEA tech communication manager, Alexandru Voica, the two reactions will be rolled out globally next week, and will be used to react to posts, comments, images, videos, and other content on the Facebook app and as well the website.
"We know this is an uncertain time, and we wanted to people to be able to show their support in ways that let their friends and family know they are thinking if them," Alexandru Voica said in

For the Pulsating heart reaction on the Messenger app, any user that wants to use it will first need to post a heart reaction inside the chat, and then long press and hold it down to view the new one. In case you want to revert back to the old one, long press the new reaction once again.
