Bring your messages to life with stickers:
– Just tap the smiley to add a playful kitten or another cute critter
– Send any sticker with one tap

How to use stickers? Within the chat window, tap the smiley face icon to bring them up. Users have the option to download other types of stickers by tapping the cart icon, which shows you a plethora of options.

Facebook first launched stickers with the release of Facebook 6.0 for iOS last month.

    I have yet to see those stickers in my FB app…

    I don’t have Messenger, but I only have the chat heads. No stickers. I think that Facebook doesn’t like me!

  • No smiley face icon for you to tap within the app?? Hope it comes soon!

    Nope. No smiley. I knew that I should not have criticised FB too much all the time! 😛

    Nope. No smiley. I knew that I should have not criticised FB so much, so often! 😛
