How To Add Stickers To Your Facebook Status Update On iOS

Couple of days back, I talked on how to apply background colors to your Facebook status update. Therein, I stated that the feature is only available on Android and would probably be making it’s way to iOS.

Up till date, iPhone and iPad users are still unable to apply color background to their Facebook status update.

Nevertheless, Facebook now allows users to add stickers to their Facebook status update. And thankfully, this is also available to iOS users.

Being able to add color background makes your status update stand out. However, being able to add stickers takes your status update to another level.

The whole idea is, giving your status update that extra touch. Stickers on status updates sorta makes it look like an image is being added. And as you probably already know, status updates with images tend to perform better than just regular text.

Having pointed that out, let’s head over to the main subject matter.


Adding Stickers To Facebook Status Update On iOS

  • First, you need to update the Facebook application to it’s latest update. Check the App Store and update accordingly.
  • Launch the Facebook app, tap on the status update tab (What’s on your mind?)
  • Tap on Feeling/Activity

  • Tap on Stickers. There, you’d find some pre-populated tags like Happy, in love, eating and others.
