Star Trek 50th anniversary celebrated on Facebook with custom like buttons
Star Trek fans around the world are celebrating the franchise’s 50th anniversary, and Facebook is getting in on the action.
Facebook users who have liked the official Star Trek page on the site are getting a few special treats to mark the half-century milestone. On Thursday, people in the U.S. and Canada will be able to show their excitement for their friends and families’ posts and photos with a special set of Star Trek reactions.
As demonstrated in the picture below, the classic “like” button is still there, but available for a limited time are updates that include the Vulcan salute for “love,” Kirk for “haha,” Spock for “wow,” Geordi for “sad,” and those feisty Klingons for “angry.”
Entertainment Weekly’s Ultimate Guide to Star Trek is available now.
Some Star Trek and sci-fi fans will also be greeted on Facebook by the USS Enterprise and have the option to add a custom Star Trek frame to their profile picture.
