Facebook gets into the Halloween spirit adding themed features


DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Facebook is getting in the Halloween spirit, adding Halloween reactions and masks in Facebook Live.

According to Facebook, you will be able to try on variety of masks, including limited-edition Halloween-themed masks when you share a live video.

Instead of reactions of “Like, Love, Haha, Wow, Sad and Angry,” Facebook launched limited-edition Halloween reactions that come to life when you tap them.
