What’s Up With This New Facebook Plane Reaction Emoji, and How Do I Use It?

Does Facebook have a new plane reaction emoji?

Some Facebook users started noticing a new reaction emoji showing up on their apps on Tuesday (Jul. 31). So far, the reaction only appears to work on Android (sorry iPhone users) and not everyone can see it.

We at Gossip On This haven’t been able to independently verify the existence of a plane reaction emoji, because we all use iPhones, but there are a number of screenshots floating around the web.

There are unconfirmed reports (mainly via this Reddit thread) that there’s also a fire reaction emoji, but we haven’t seen anyone use that one yet.

Anyhow, these are the steps you need to follow to get the airplane reaction emoji to work on your Android devices.

Step One: Update your Facebook app.

If you’re not using the latest version of the Facebook app, you need to update it. Go the Google Play Store, then go to Settings. Hit the auto-update apps button, then choose one of the following options: Do not auto-update apps. Auto-update apps at any time. Auto-update apps over Wi-Fi only.

Step Two: Clear your app’s cache.

If you’re already using the latest version of the Facebook app, you need to clear your cache. You can do this by going to Settings > Apps > Facebook > Storage > Clear cache.

And that’s it! After you’ve updated the app and cleared the cache, you should be able to see and use Facebook’s new plane reaction emoji.

How do I see the plane reaction?

After you’ve installed the latest version and cleared your cache, go to any Facebook post and “react” to it as you normally would with any other post, and the plane reaction should be presented as one of your options.

Some users have reported seeing a second angry face instead of a plane, so if that’s the case for you, hit the second angry face and the plane emoji will be added. In order to use the emoji again, repeat the same process.

Also, FYI, there’s a scam going around telling users that if they like certain pages or comment on certain posts, they’ll be able to gain access to the plane reaction emoji, but we’re here to let you know that it’s NOT TRUE. It’s not possible for you to be able to use a Facebook feature by liking/commenting on pages or posts.

How long will the plane reaction be around?

Facebook hasn’t announced that they would be releasing a new reaction emoji, which has raised a number of questions among users.

However, a Facebook spokesperson told Fast Company regarding the plane reaction: “This was created as part of an employee hackathon and wasn’t cleared for takeoff. Our apologies.”

So it sounds like this is definitely not a permanent addition and will only be around for a limited time. So, enjoy it while it lasts!

Funniest “My Mama Said” Jokes & Tweets

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you will know that at least three major news events occurred over the past week.

The 12 boys from the Thailand soccer team, along with their coach, were successfully rescued from a cave they’d been trapped in for two weeks. France won the 2018 FIFA World Cup. And Cardi B memes are running rampant all over the internet.

Someone recently shared a picture of Cardi B (real name: Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar) as a child, and as Twitter is wont to do, they turned it into a hilarious meme, pointing out Baby Belcalis’ “tattle tale” stance and combining it with the phrase “my mama said…”

Perhaps the funniest part of the meme is that we all know a little smart azz child who doesn’t mind putting your business out there. Hell, some of us were that annoying, smart-mouthed kid. But the captions are what really set this meme off. Combine that with the thought of Cardi B’s voice as a tiny tot and you have the perfect recipe for pure hilarity.

“Chaka Khan Net Worth” Google Result Is Giving the Internet Lots of LOLs

For most people, when they have questions about something, they turn to Google, which 9 times out of 10 gives them the answer(s) they desire. Sometimes, however, the search engine giant returns not-so-expected results that end up being HEE-LARIOUS.

Like that one time a search of “New England Patriots owner” or “Patriots owner” returned the result “Nick Foles,” the Quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles and Super Bowl MVP. Of course, Nick Foles doesn’t actually OWN the Patriots (though he did “own” them in the Super Bowl), but that’s what made the whole thing funny. It ended up going viral on social media and Google eventually fixed it.

Now, someone has pointed out yet another hilarious “Google Blooper.” When you input the search terms “Chaka Khan net worth,” you get this:

That is NOT a picture of Chaka Khan, obviously. It’s actually the late R&B singer/songwriter Nick Ashford, one half of the legendary soul duo Ashford and Simpson. And the Internet is having a whole field day over the Google blunder.

Oddly enough, the actual link to the search result shows the correct photo of Chaka Khan, so I have no idea why Google is showing Nick Ashford on the SERP (Search Engine Result Page).

If I were Chaka Khan, I would be drafting a NASTY e-mail to Google HQ right about now. How dare they?! (LOL). Anyhow, if you want to see the hilarity for yourself, you’d better hurry up before Google finds out and fixes it.
