 Facebook Has a List of Special Words That Will Spice Up Your News Feed

Facebook has some secrets that are finally unravelled. It's been working towards making your News Feed more colorful and we love the new changes. Facebook is introducing a list of greetings and words included in a status update, that trigger hidden animations.

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.

In an update to this small list, Facebook is updating your News Feed with more words including "bff," "lmao," and "thank you so much." 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.

The social media platform is bringing more animations and features like its colorful status updates, so you can expect more interesting features coming to Facebook.
