What’s up with all the purple flowers ? Understanding Facebook’s new reaction button.

If you’ve noticed, Facebook has added a new temporary reaction with a purple flower along with its current Like, Love, HaHa, Sad, Wow, Angry collection.


Turns out the purple flower is Facebook’s recognition for the love, care and effort of mothers all over the world and to express gratitude for our dear moms on the occasion of Mothers Day on May14.

Facebook said, “In honour of Mother’s Day, we are testing the ability for people in a few markets to leave a flower reaction.”

When you hit the “Thankful” button, facebook lets the flowers flow up all over your screen.


Millions around the world are appreciating Facebook’s move to dedicate a “Thankful” button in recognition of all the mothers around the world.

Are you grateful for your mother’s presence in life? Millions of people are orphaned and don’t have a person they could call “Mom”

They could never experience the priceless “Mom cooked food” that we enjoy almost every day without a second thought of appreciation.

What do you think about the Facebook’s move to celebrate Mothers Day with a purple flower reaction?
