One of the most fancy holidays of the year, Halloween is making a serious impact on social media and of course, Facebook is one of them.
The social media giant launched a bunch of Halloween treats that is no surprise for its users. Live masks and reaction emojis make the platform festive, so that people celebrate the holiday in its special soul.
Halloween-themed face filters for the Live videos are offering pumpkin or skeleton themes for your video-selfies. The face-distorting masks seem like a good way to spend the holiday online. Facebook has built masks directly into its Live product.
Once you are live, start by tapping the magic wand at the upper-left corner on your screen. Then, you select the masks icon in the creative tools tray at the bottom of the screen. Scroll through the options and tap on masks to have them appear on your face when you are live. After using the masks, you can remove them by scrolling left in the mask trap and tam the no mask sign.
The other thing is the haunted six reactions called Halloween Reactions. Rather than the ‘angry’, ‘sad’, ‘wow’ and ‘haha’ faces, there are now Frankenstein head, glowing jack-o-lantern, a little white sheet ghost and a witch. If a user taps one of these emojis, the emojis will appear as a reaction.
Here’s the video for the reaction emojis,
and a GIF for the Live video filters,
To use the Halloween reactions, hold down the Like button on mobile or hover over the Like button on desktop to see the reaction image options, then choose from the skeletal thumbs up (Like), the candy heart (Love), the laughing witch (Haha), the ghost (Wow), Frankenstein (Sad), or the scowling pumpkin (Angry).
Facebook loves Halloween, that’s all we know for sure, and we wish a bewitching holiday for you all (!)
