Facebook Friends’ Day is really confusing people

Facebook’s Friends Day is confusing people everywhere

Facebook has launched a new feature where a dancing humanoid robot made out of ‘like’ and ‘reaction’ emojis displays images of your apparent best friends in a bid to celebrate Friendship Day.

Except Friendship Day is officially marked on June 30 or the first Sunday in August so people are a little confused.

Some people pointed out that the people they had seen on their video was more of a ‘Facebook friend’ than a friend.

Or they were just pictures of themselves.

Or they were just random pictures with no friends on them.

But that’s not all that’s weird about today’s marking of Friendship Day. The event has previously been held on Facebook on February 4 for the last two years.

In 2015 (on February 4) Mark Zuckerberg wrote: ‘Today is a day to celebrate friends. It’s also Facebook’s birthday, but today isn’t about celebrating us. It’s about friendship.

‘Friendship isn’t a distraction from the meaningful things in life. Friendship is what gives meaning to our lives.
Our friendships make the world work. We laugh, we cry and we learn with friends. We eat, we shop and we work with friends. And when we fight for what we believe and change the world, we do that with friends too.

The UN says the official friendship day was created in 2011 to ‘recognise the relevance and importance of friendship as a noble and valuable sentiment in the lives of human beings around the world.’

However the reaction to this year’s Friends’ Day has left many asking why it happened.

Some bemused users took to Twitter to share how less than impressed they were with the innovation.
