Guys, since some days, we are seeing a lot of people posting BFF in the comments on Facebook to know their account’s security status. Do you think it works? Let’s find out.
Before digging deep into it, let us first have a look at one interesting feature of Facebook.
You might have noticed that, when you type certain words in comments, the word gets highlighted and some overlay animation is displayed for a short time.
For example, in the below GIF I have typed the word “Congratulations“. Observe what happens:
Have you noticed those animated balloons? That is what the feature is all about. It is named the “Text Delight” feature and is introduced by Facebook some time ago.
It works on specific keywords in the comment. Let’s try out one more as in the GIF below:
Awesome! Isn’t it?
Now you might be thinking what’s the point in explaining about this feature, while I am here to know about the damn BFF thing. Guys, “BFF” is actually one of those keywords which activate the Text Delight animation. You will find a complete list of the keywords just by a simple Google search.
Have you also noticed that the word “Congratulations” is highlighted in orange? Similarly, the word “BFF” has got its green color. Let’s finally type it:
Yay! My account is secure! Jokes apart.
Some fellow has used this feature and created a hoax around it. Let me assure you guys, there is no relation of your account’s security with this damn BFF comment. Yes. It is a hoax.
For some people the word BFF isn’t highlighted just because they might be using an older version of the Facebook app.
So, calm down and stop commenting BFF on Facebook! Have a happy and safe Social Networking 🙂
