Facebook quietly rolled out a special red-themed like emoji for CNY


In this short announcement, you might have spotted a red-themed Like react icon on your Facebook page. If you thought it was a colour error, it's not but it's in conjunction with the Chinese New Year celebration that's happening on 12 February 2021.

Initially, the Facebook platform on the web browser was the first to have it before Android and iOS. One of our Chinese writers said you can get the CNY Like react if you switch the language settings to Mandarin and back the English. It doesn't seem to be an app update as well so if you still can't get it, just be patient.


We aren't sure how long will this special CNY Like last but most probably until throughout the weekend. We wish all the Chinese Malaysian families a Happy Chinese New Year, stay healthy, stay safe and practice your SOPs. Stay tuned for more trending tech news at TechNave.com.
