Facebook Celebrates Star Trek’s 50th With Themed Reaction Buttons & Profile Frames

September 9, 2016 - photo frame


In box we hadn’t already beheld from a celebrations all over a internet today, it’s Star Trek‘s 50th Anniversary! One approach we can applaud a holiday is by articulate about Star Trek a lot, given because not, though we could also click “Like” on a central Star Trek Facebook page and thereby get yourself entrance to some themed Facebook greeting buttons. After we “Like” that page, you’ll have to modernise your browser window, and afterwards a buttons will automatically uncover up.

The typical “Like” reaction is mostly unvaried in a Star Trek version; it’s still a thumbs up, though now it’s surrounded by stars. The “Love” greeting has been transposed by a Vulcan salute. The “Haha” symbol has been ornate with Captain Kirk’s signature blond swoop, and a “Wow” symbol has Spock’s bangs and eyebrows. The “Sad” symbol pays loyalty to Geordi and his trademark VISOR, and a “Angry” symbol has some Klingon front ridges.

I’m certain it was formidable to confirm how a buttons would demeanour and that characters would get featured, though I’m still unhappy that Uhura didn’t make a cut (she would have been good as a “Haha” instead of Kirk, if we ask me). we suspect that given her braid has altered for a reboot (unlike Kirk and Spock, who have comparatively identical hairstyles), it would have been tough to describe her in a miniaturized emoticon form that people would be guaranteed to recognize.

Really, Star Trek has so many good characters that it’s easy to consider of others that could have been enclosed here. For some reason there is no Star Trek-themed plaque container on Facebook, either. Clearly a missed opportunity!

Anyway, I’m not certain either a buttons will only be around for today, or if we’ll have a choice to keep them longer, so we competence as good go suffer them while we can.

If we wish to rivet with your Star Trek fandom on Facebook in a some-more open approach that usually regulating greeting buttons that usually we (and other Star Trek likers) can see, maybe you’d like to add a Star Trek support to your form print on Facebook. Just go to facebook.com/profilepicframes, name a “Entertainment” category, and click on a Star Trek one. There are 4 options, all of that demeanour unequivocally neat, and Uhura indeed appears in one of them! Here’s my example:


While you’re doing Star Trek-related things on Facebook, by a way, we competence wish to check out a Roddenberry Entertainment page, given they’ve also been posting a lot of cold Star Trek history to applaud a 50th.

Any other cold pages out there celebrating a anniversary? Share them with us!
