Facebook is mourning France just like everyone else in the world right now and they want to show that they care by enabling you to do the same, with only one click. As a checkmate to the horrible acts that have been conducted on Friday evening, Facebook wants to show terrorists that the world is not afraid of them and that the dead will never be forgotten. Now, with the new photo filter added by the social media company, you can pay your respects to the 120 who have passed away.
The support that France is receiving right now is unending and Facebook wanted to add their most sincere contribution. You can now add France’s flag colors onto your profile picture as a sign of empathy. The feature is available for anyone worldwide and it resembles the same movement that was promoted last summer for gay marriage support.
Finding this specific feature onto your Facebook page is rather tricky, but there is one secure way in which you can activate it. If you will visit Facebook’s official page, you will also see a post that goes as follows” We stand together. #JeSuisParis”. Attached to this post, it will not be difficult for you to see the “try it” button that enables you to add France’s colors to your profile picture. Don’t forget to share this information with your friends so that France knows that we all support them in their darkest hour.
Facebook has become one of the most reliable sources on the internet in terms of checking friends and family from all over the world and this situation was by all means no exception. Even as the events were unfolding, people started asking questions about who was missing, posts emerged saying that people were within the safety of their houses and even posts that mentioned those who had been injured, but managed to get to safe haven.
But Facebook is not the only online giant offering support for those in need. Rumor has it that Snapchat is also trying to follow the trend and it has enabled a filter with “Pray for Paris” as its message along with the Blue, White and Red colors.
Facebook is mourning France, Snapchat is doing the same and it will not be long until the other social media platforms will respond as well. We pray for these people’s safety and encourage them to stay strong.
