Friends Day is a made-up holiday that celebrates something real: our friends.
This year, we wanted to remind everyone just how great their friends are, while giving them a way to say thanks.
So we created an on-platform product called 'Friend Awards' that you could give to any friend to thank them for being the best.
Over 21 million Friend Awards were shared on Friends Day, all over the world.
We created 37 Friend Awards in total. Some awards were based on on-platform behavior like "Big Liker" and "First Facebook Friend.
Other awards celebrated how great friends are in real life like, "World-Class Hugs," "Sweet Dance Moves" or "My Favorite Weirdo."
