Faceboook mistakenly released this Tuesday (31) an airplane reaction that quickly won the social network, attracting the curiosity of many users. The aircraft button would appear next to the traditional cones of the tool, like the famous tan. To react with the plane, it would be necessary to write a secret code inside the plane. However, it was all a mistake: in a note, the company recognizes that a bug brought a cone that should not have been there.
The social network apologized and explained that the error resulted from an experiment carried out in a hackathon. He was not authorized to take off, the company said in a good-natured note. He also said he had taken steps to take the little plane off the air.

Right now, the question of how to react with airplanes on Facebook appears among the most searched subjects on Google. In theory, it would be enough to comment in some post with #addplanereact to access figure. In our tests, however, the little plane was no longer available. Other users report the return of the flower and a reaction with flames of fire. None of that official.
The practice of testing common on the social network, a beta environment is available for developers to apply ideas and evaluate their achievement. Not all experiences become part of Facebook, that is, they are free to be used by users. Some tests were done by Mark Zuckerberg's company, as a version for personalized avatars and a type of monetization for content creators, but nothing about reactions was disclosed.

The resource reactions already had temporary commemorative icons. The mothers were able to send and receive gratitude, represented by a lilac flower, on Mother's Day 2016 and 2017. The LGBTQ + community was able to demonstrate support through "pride", a reaction symbolized by a flag in the colors of the rainbow, in June last year during the month of LGBTQ + Pride.
In 2018, nothing new in this regard was disclosed by the social network.
