And red is the most popular personalized chat color along with heart the most popular custom emoji. Since we are in an era where the use of social networking sites is now part and parcel of our daily lives, these companies also want to capitalize on the day and one of them is Facebook. Lastly, your loved one will be the first to appear on the "Active Tab" on top of Messenger.

"In the spirit of feeling all the feelings, we thought it would be timely to share how people in the Messenger community express their love and adoration", Messenger said in a blogpost on Tuesday. The app also has your significant other appear at the top of Messenger's Active tab, which is great for those who chat the most with their significant other.
