How do you get Facebook stickers?

Facebook stickers are animations or illustrations of characters that you can send onto your friends so show how you’re feeling when you’re chatting to them. They work in a similar way to smiley faces in text messages because they can be used to represent how you’re feeling without the need to go into details.

How are they used?

The best thing about Facebook stickers is that they’re really easy to use. Whenever you’re chatting online with a friend, all you have to do is click on the smiley face at the bottom of the chat box. This will bring you up a choice of sticker packs. When you choose a pack, it’s sent directly to your friend.

Download sticker packs

You can download more sticker packs by going into the sticker store and click on the shopping cart icon. All you have to do after that is click “Free” or “Add” next to the sticker pack you want to download.

Chat stickers

These stickers are similar to emoticon images found on smartphones but they’ve been given a bit of a twist by the guys at Facebook to make sure they’re unique. They can be used whether you’re chatting on your smartphone, PC or tablet and they support both iPhone and Android devices. At the moment they’re totally free but there’s every chance that Facebook’s owners will see profit in this popular new craze and unveil even wackier designs that will come with a price tag.
