Ever wondered what the Facebook 'flower reaction' means?


As we all know, Facebook's reaction buttons are there so you can express your feelings about things, rather than simply 'liking' posts.


Facebook introduced the flower reaction for Mother's Day 2016 and now, it appears to be back for the second year in a row.

A statement released by the social media giant said

“In honor of Mother’s Day we are testing the ability for people in a few markets to leave a flower reaction".

This is where it gets a tad confusing for we celebrated Mother's Day in March but in the United States and a number of other countries, Mother's Day is celebrated on the second Sunday in May, which takes place on May 14th this year.


It's a temporary reaction too that can be used to show how thankful you are (Mam, you're the best) so go forth and show your appreciation even if it's not technically Mother's Day here.

All very confusing but then mothers should be made feel special all the time so why not use it?!
