Facebook has announced that it will be making certain changes to its application in the form of Halloween-themed masks and reactions.
Facebook Live now features Masks, which allows the user to try out a range of different masks, including limited edition Halloween-themed masks, when sharing live videos.
There are several festive marks such as skull, an evil queen, and two limited-edition ones — a pumpkin and a witch. More will be added after Halloween, but they will have other themes.
According to Facebook, these Masks will be rolled out over the next few days for those using Facebook Live iOS in the United States, UK and New Zealand. Unfortunately, Android users will only get these masks in the coming months, though Facebook promised to bring them in more countries.
Next are the Halloween Reactions which is represented by a set of limited-edition reactions which replace the usual Like (a skeletal thumb up), Love (a candy heart), Haha (a laughing witch), Wow (a ghost), Sad (Frankenstein), Angry (a scowling pumpkin).
The process of using the new reaction is same as the previous one. However, unlike Masks, the Halloween Reactions are supposed to be available on both the Android and iOS platforms, but it is unclear as to when they will available in all countries.
