From long, sentimental posts to black and white photographs from childhood... let's face it, when it comes to mothers, all of Facebook is incredibly "thankful" for all that mothers do each and every day to make our lives so much sweeter.
In addition to all those heartfelt sentiments that were shared last Sunday, to kick off Mother's Day weekend, the social site brought back the purple flower reaction which allowed you to respond to posts with a reaction of "thankfulness"... instead of a simple Like.
The purple flower isn't anything too new, having got its start last year around Mother's Day. This change came not long after Facebook had expanded the Like button to include other ranges of reactions such as ha-ha, wow, love, sad and angry faces. However, the purple flower was the first of its kind as a temporary reaction that the social powerhouse would roll out time and time again as years went by.
As welcoming as this feature is, it turns out that this is just one of the many ways that Facebook is celebrating mothers here in the U.S. as well as the rest of the month where the day is celebrated on other dates around the world.
To coincide with the purple flower reaction, Facebook is adding Mother's Day themed masks and frames to the Facebook Camera which will be available when you swipe right on their News Feed. Live on Mother's Day, May 14th, these new changes will help us to celebrate mom on Facebook... but if you can, you should also celebrate mom face to face.
