Facebook Scraps The Pride Flag Along With Other Custom Reactions—And Users Are Bummed

Facebook users loved custom reactions for holidays and notable pop culture moments, but they’re going away. Many weren’t that popular, but the rainbow reaction during Pride Month was something a lot of people used and quite enjoyed – so it’s understandable that they’re bummed out about losing it. 

People haven’t been shy about mentioning it either. 

What some people may not know is that pride isn’t gone from Facebook. The reaction, which only lasted for Pride month, is gone – just like all custom reactions are. Facebook has, instead, added frames which are available all year round and collaborated with Instagram to identify hashtags that the LGBT+ community frequently uses. 

Those hashtags will get us some awesomely colorful pride gradients! 

So what do you think? Are the frames and gradients enough or do you need your pride reactions back?
