Facebook has introduced a new feature to help people share more love in their communities.
The new Facebook Messenger feature lets people post a message to their Facebook friends or family members on the site.
“What this means is you can now tell your Facebook friends that you are thinking of getting married or getting married with the intention of sharing your message, it doesn’t have to be in person,” Facebook spokesman Rob Graham told ABC Radio National.
Facebook Messenger will be available in Australia for about a month, but only on desktop and mobile devices.
“The aim is to encourage people to engage with one another in a way that is meaningful, meaningful to each other and meaningful to the world,” he said.
“We’re excited to make it available for everyone.”
Social media has long been a major source of love for many Australians.
Last year, a study by research firm Brandwatch found that more than 40 per cent of Australians aged 18-34 had used social media at least once in the last 12 months.
The study also found that young Australians were more likely to share a love story than older Australians.
