All About Facebook Stickers and Sticker Store

Facebook has made a major change in its chat, inbox messaging and main website by introducing large emoticons called Facebook Stickers and these are available through Facebook Sticker Store. These icons can be sent as message to convey a pictorial presentation of your thoughts and emotions. Such icons have been in use since the earliest days of chat messengers like Yahoo! and MSN. Now new mobile apps like WhatsApp are also making heavy use of them and are very popular.

What are Facebook Stickers?

Facebook Stickers are small icons that you can send (with or without accompanying text) as a message. As they say, a picture says thousand words, conveying some thoughts and emotions through pictures is a lot easier. FB Stickers are follow the same concept. These emoticons are in addition to the regular Facebook smilies. And you can also post beautiful text art in your Facebook and Twitter messages.

Where Facebook Stickers can be used?

Launched as part of their mobile Messenger, now Facebook has made these Stickers available on web as well. You can send them in Facebook chat and inbox messages.

Where to Find Facebook Stickers?

Look for a grey smiley face in top-right corner of your chat box or message compose box. Clicking on this smiley will pop a box containing some Stickers. Click to select whichever you need.

Are Facebook Stickers free to use?

Yes, at present, all the sets available in Sticker Store are free and you can download any set in your chat box.

Is Facebook going to charge for Stickers in future?

Going by the FREE written against currently available sets, yes, it is likely that Facebook may be planning to launch paid Stickers in future. But at present all sets are free.

Why don’t I see Stickers in my box?

Facebook has recently brought Stickers to its main website on web. The feature is still rolling out on FB servers around the world. If you still don’t see the option of sending Stickers, just wait until your server gets updated. You don’t need to do anything but wait a bit!

  1. Would love an accurate list of the meaning behind the Meep stickers. Hate thinking someone is posting something I might not like…LOL

  2. I hope they have plans to make “every day life” sayings in stickers, that would be awesome. Like “Don’t let the door hit you in the a**” ~ “are you kidding me” ~ “it takes one to know one” or ~”she’s or he’s, got the same clothes to get glad in” you get my drift :-)

    1. Hi Darlele, I kind of agree with you that such daily use language Facebook stickers would be a hit among users. The whole idea behind FB stickers to be to able to express yourself with the help of pictures. I hope Mark Zuckerberg is listening! Thanks for the comment, Darlene, hope to hear more from you on TechWelkin.
