In Facebook Messenger in the web browser or the messenger app, there is a thumbs up sticker button out by default. People I know changed it to some other icons by default, but I can't ask them how.

I don't see any option for it, yet somehow it was changed. After you change it, it will say

<person name> set the emoji to <emoji here>.

Can anyone tell me how to change it?


Mine doesn't show the option of the I either - you have to go into a chat and click the persons name at the top - there it will give you the option to change color text and emoji :)


Using Facebook Messenger, at the conversation window, go to:

Details (top-right) --> Emoji --> Pick your Emoji.

There's no option to change Emoji using the web version yet.
