As we all are in lockdown, with the help of Facebook, we all can stay in touch with friends, family, and neighbours. To show the love and support to your friends, the company said, it will add a new reaction emoji for “care“. An emoji face is hugging a heart and a pulsing heart which will come with “thumbs up”.
The care reaction is slated to launch globally on Facebook’s app and website sometime next week, and it can be accessed alongside the other like button reactions. A different care reaction will be coming to Facebook Messenger: a beating heart. Messenger already has a non-animated heart reaction. However, users will be given an option to switch to the new one by pressing and holding down on the default heart reaction.

We’re launching new Care reactions on @facebookapp and @Messenger as a way for people to share their support with one another during this unprecedented time.— Alexandru Voica (@alexvoica) April 17, 2020
We hope these reactions give people additional ways to show their support during the #COVID19 crisis. pic.twitter.com/HunGyK8KQw
