Enabling the Pride reaction on your Facebook account

Facebook now allows users to share the Pride flag as a reaction to both posts and comments. It's a great addition for those celebrating Pride Month.

Similar to other custom reactions on Facebook, a user must opt-in by liking a specific page. In this case, liking the LGBTQ@Facebook page will enable the Pride reaction for your account.

After liking the page, wait about five minutes and then the rainbow option will appear on both mobile and the web.

Step-by-Step instructions

1) Open the Facebook either through the app or browser

2) Search for LGBTQ@Facebook in the top search bar

3) Like the LGBTQ@Facebook page

4) Wait five minutes

5) Spread delightful rainbows as far and wide as you choose

The pride reaction will most likely only be around for the rest of the month.
