Every instant messaging app is throwing stickers around. BBM was first in line, I think (though I am not certain). Now Facebook Messenger is embracing the whole sticker business. Facebook has a new Stickered app just for plastering stickers on your photos. Is that supposed to be adult fun or something?
What I do not get is the essence of stickers. For one, they are copies of regular emoticons, only just bigger. I also notice that they do not get inserted in a message you are sending (at least on BBM). I do not like that. What exactly is the big deal about stickers?
