Facebook gift for Mothers day 2017


It’s the Thursday before 2017 Mother’s Day, which makes it the last day you can comfortably order flowers for your mom without freaking out that they won’t arrive in time. But if you forget, or are simply too cheap to spring for an Edible Arrangement, Facebook is offering a digital flower in some markets. The flower was spotted by Twitter user Sreedev Sharma. “To celebrate Mother’s Day, we are testing the ability for people in a few markets to leave a flower reaction,” the company said in a statement. This marks the first time the company has offered a temporary reaction, and comes three months after it expanded the like button to include a range of other responses.


Facebook did not specify the markets in which the flower will be available. After Mother’s Day, you won’t be able to leave the flower as a reaction, but it will still appear underneath any posts where it has been added. If Facebook is pleased with the results, I can imagine temporary reactions becoming the company’s answer to Google Doodles — a little bit of whimsy that livens up the product at a relatively low cost. It’s a small thing, but a nice touch.
