The social network has been experimenting with these for awhile- words such as Congrats/Congratulations (in pretty much every language) gives you colorful confetti and balloons popping on your screen, rad/radness activates a flurry of “thumbs up” emojis rocketing across your screen and xoxo/ bisous gives you hearts. How it works is that when you post any such word in a status update, words like rad will be highlighted in colors such as purple. Clicking on these highlighted words triggers a brief animation associated to the word.

Each of which includes its own color and animation triggered by the word. Animation effects will also be a part of reactions to "life events," like engagements and weddings. With this, every time someone adds a reaction to a "life event," the reaction will be followed by animated reactions that fill the update.
