A. Using Facebook stickers in Facebook chat

Most of us would have already used Facebook stickers in their Facebook chat. For those who haven’t; Simply open a chat window and find the smiley on the bottom-right corner of the Facebook chat window. If you click on the smiley, you will find a set of smileys that can be used in your Facebook chat. Along with the smiley, you will have new tabs for stickers where you can go and see the stickers belonging to that particular set as shown below:

As you can see, there is still a way out if you really love Facebook stickers and would like to use them in your Facebook comments. We use the fact that Facebook allows using images in comments and that stickers are nothing but images (plain or animated ones).

Unfortunately, you will not be able to directly copy the image from your Facebook chats but you can copy them from their original source which can be seen in any of the browsers using the “View source” / “Inspect Element” options. Some examples of the source URLs are mentioned below:

Big Smiley:
Cut the Rope 1:
Cut the Rope 2:

All you need to do is just go to the URL, right click on the image and then copy and paste it in your Facebook comments. You might find this method long, but you can actually create a page will all the stickers together and then copy paste every time you want to use them.
