Facebook launches Holi-themed avatars, here's how you can get them
Facebook has launched a bunch of Holi-themed avatars that can be used in comments on posts, and on Messenger as well.
In celebration of Holi that’s taking place on March 29, Facebook has launched Holi-themed avatars. Facebook said there have been more than four million people in India who made over 6.6 million posts and comments about Holi in the past two weeks.
Facebook users can create Holi-themed avatars from the smartphone app. These avatars can be created through the Facebook app, and from the Messenger app as well. You can do this from the comment composer of either of the two apps. In the comment bar tap on the smiley button, and then select the sticker tab. Here, you’ll find the option to “Create Your Avatar”. You can also find the avatar creator in the Bookmarks section of the Facebook app.
