Until now, you could use stickers only in messages sent via Facebook chat. This is no longer the case! As of this week, you can also use stickers in Facebook comments. If you want to post a comment and you feel like text just won’t do it, you can use a sticker instead.

Tons of fun and quirky stickers are available on the Sticker Store.

Among other things, Facebook lets you send messages to your friends – and because text isn’t always enough, you can season your chat with emoticons and stickers.

Click the smiley face icon to select a sticker or emoticon.



Recently used stickers are conveniently presented to you.



The fact that Facebook lets you use stickers in your chats isn’t new. What’s new is that the option to use stickers is now available for comments as well. Instead of posting a comment that says “hey, we should meet up and have a beer”, you can comment with a sticker of a funny looking cat that holds up a barrel and a pint of beer.



Rodney Folz hates stickers and fun – at least that’s what he proclaims on Twitter. And because he hates stickers, he decided to do something about it. He hastily came up with Unsticker Me, a Chrome extension and Firefox add-on that gets rid of stickers in Facebook comments.

Unsticker Me works like this: it replaces stickers in comments with a piece of text that says “sticker.”



It’s worth noting that Unsticker.me does not get rid of stickers in chats.

In related and more serious news, Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg decided to help the fight against Ebola by donating $25 million to the CDC Foundation.

“The Ebola epidemic is at a critical turning point. It has infected 8,400 people so far, but it is spreading very quickly and projections suggest it could infect 1 million people or more over the next several months if not addressed,” said Zuckerberg on his Facebook page. “We need to get Ebola under control in the near term so that it doesn't spread further and become a long term global health crisis that we end up fighting for decades at large scale, like HIV or polio.”
