A digital sticker pack based on a character created by Bangladeshi twin brothers was launched by Facebook on Saturday.
The social media platform released the first Bangladeshi cartoonists’ special sticker pack titled Drogo, a fictional character, to its more than two billion users across the globe, said Manik one of the creators of Drogo.
The special set of 20 stickers was made available on Facebook Sticker Store from April 14, said the Facebook Sticker division on its social network page.
‘Meet Drogo and watch this little creature interact in your world, messages and comments,’ said Facebook in its Facebook Sticker’s official page on Saturday.
Get Drogo and start sending this new Facebook Stickers package today, the US-based social media giant added.
These stickers can be used while chatting on Facebook Messenger. Besides, surfers can express their feeling using Drogo in Facebook comments or poster.
Drogo is a fictional mascot of Bangladeshi twin cartoonists Manik and Ratan that basically depicts a character of a blend of a puppy dragon and a puppy dinosaur, said Manik, who along with his animator brother Ratan created the character in 2015.
This little dragon drinks coffee, sleeps in the hands of a friend, celebrates birthday, plays football, leaves a surprise gift, shows a romantic heart, celebrate a birthday and more.
Manik and Ratan have been drawing and posting the character at their Instagram profile since 2017. Later the character also gained immense popularity on Facebook owned photo sharing social media platform.
‘Last year 20217, we received a special mail from Facebook’s sticker department appreciating the character and they also showed their interest to include it at sticker store,’ said Manik.
‘After the long development process, Facebook has finally opened Drogo to hundreds of users around the world,’ they said on their Facebook page.
