“Stickers (and emojis alike!) have a language of their own and help people find new ways to express their moods, reactions, and experiences. Whether you wish to contribute your split for dinner with friends, celebrate the credit of your salary, or express the joy of receiving blessings (shagan) from your relatives–there is a sticker to express each of these special moments with your loved ones,” the Facebook-owned said.
