You can use these to used to express your thoughts and sentiments towards a post or something in your Facebook feed or a chat with a Facebook compadre. From a simple thumbs up to popping a champagne cork or lying coquettishly by an open fireplace with a rose between your Avatar’s teeth, these stickers offer a variety of ways to express yourself in quiet digital form.
