How to Wave on Facebook

My dear friends, In How to Wave on messenger article, I will give you information about the Waving emoji, how, when, and why the wave is used.

In the year 2014, Facebook had a Waving emoji feature in the Messenger application. On Facebook Messenger, anyone uses the Facebook Wave button to connect with the person on their friend list.

When you start a conversation with your friend or someone, a moving yellow colored hand is seen which is used for a “Hi” or “Hello”. Sending this wave or moving hand icon works best to get that friend’s attention at the same time.

First of all, let me tell you that the option of a clear wave is not present on Facebook’s website or mobile application. The option of Wave is only present in the Messenger application and its website.
