Brace yourselves: you can now use stickers instead of text on Facebook comments


Facebook stickers DSC07196

It started with emojis, then images but starting today, you should start seeing stickers being used in lieu of actual words in the comments section on Facebook. What started out as a hackathon project by Bob Baldwin and Kwame Thomison, later rolled out to mobile users, and now finally, Android and iOS. We’re not sure if this required an update (or if it updated on Facebook’s backend), but you should find the new sticker button located next to the “write a comment” bar up and running in your app.

With memes, apps like Yo, and the rise of all-photo or all-emoji social networks, is it possible our smartphones — with the vast wealth of knowledge they give the world access to — actually be responsible for the death of modern language? Maybe we should all just get with the times and embrace new communication methods like this? No. It’s the children who are wrong.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.
