To add more colors to the conversations and festive celebrations on the platform, Facebook has launched Holi-themed Avatar stickers. You can now personalise your Avatars with Holi-themed stickers and get a Holi-themed Facebook avatar. It could be done by going through the following steps.
To create your Avatar, use your mobile device and go to the Facebook or Messenger comment composer, click on the smiley button, and then the sticker tab. Click “Create Your Avatar”. Or find the avatar creator in the Bookmarks section in your Facebook app. The new Holi stickers will appear in the sticker library when you are posting or commenting on Facebook posts, or while using Messenger.
As the excitement around the festival increases, so have the conversations. As per Facebook, more than 4 million people in India have made over 6.6 million posts and comments about Holi on Facebook in the past two weeks.
In other news, the social media giant could be working on its own Clubhouse rival to lure the audience to its own platform. This is speculated to be attempted with the help of a new feature in Messenger Rooms, as per some photos shared on Twitter by reverse engineer Alessandro Paluzzi. He chanced upon the new, experimental feature in Facebook’s Android app code, which allows users to choose the type of room they want in Messenger Rooms. The options include a private audio room with friends, a private video room and a live audio broadcast to listeners in a room. There hasn’t been a public broadcast feature in Messenger Rooms.
