Facebook has dropped custom reactions for major holidays and moments in culture and the popular reactions for Pride Month are gone
Facebook has a full set of stickers and filters available in the Messenger Camera.
Facebook is dropping its Pride reactions this year for Pride Month.
A company spokesperson told Business Insider, We are no longer doing custom reactions for major holidays or moments in culture.
There is, however, a wide array of new Pride-themed stickers and filters on Facebook, Messenger, and Instagram.
Facebook is making sure users can celebrate Pride Month with an array of filters and stickers this year, but theres one thing you wont be able to do: Pride react.
The popular rainbow flag wont be available as a reaction this year, Lisa Stratton, a spokeswoman from Facebook, confirmed to Business Insider, because the company is nixing custom reactions altogether.
We are no longer doing custom reactions for major holidays or moments in culture, Stratton said.
You may have already noticed the change. In 2017, Facebook let people celebrate with Mothers Day-themed flower reactions, but the purple flowers werent activated this year. Facebook similarly released the limited-edition Pride reaction last year in major cities. At the time, the company said it was a new experience it was testing.
Users, it appears, are not pleased by the absence of a Pride reaction in the year of our lord 20gayteen.
Facebook is, however, releasing a full set of new Pride-themed filters and stickers on Facebook, Messenger, and Instagram just not a specific Pride reaction. And these features will be available for an entire year, not just the month of June.
Users will be able to find a new rainbow profile picture frame, pride backgrounds for text posts, filters and stickers in Messenger and Facebooks Camera, and live Pride reactions and stickers in Instagram Stories.
