The same day, the internet news blog 8shit[2] published an article with instructions on how to enable the reaction on Facebook. In order to enable the emoji, users needed to update their Facebook mobile app, then clear the app's cache. Two anger reactions would then be available to select, the 2nd of which would be displayed as a plane emoji (shown below).
