CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Facebook has updated their reaction buttons for Halloween.

In February, Facebook added reactions - love, haha, wow, sad and angry - in addition to the like button.

Now, the reactions have been updated for the upcoming holiday.

This is the first time the reactions have had different images for a special occasion.

The new reaction buttons include all of the same reactions, but the images have changed to reflect Halloween.

While on the desktop site, if you hover over the like button, the reactions will appear.

Some mobile users have reported not being able to use the new feature through the Facebook application for iOS or Android.

The new images include Frankenstein's monster, a purple witch, a wide-mouthed ghost, and a pumpkin.

The new reactions will stick around for Halloween and convert back to the traditional look soon after, according to Facebook.
