According to the Facebook Newsroom, Facebook is giving users a chance to show their love and gratitude to their friends who have been in their lives.

Facebook users will receive notifications at the top of their News Feed wishing them a Happy Friends Day, with a personalised Friends Awards video. This is a means to acknowledge your friends for the roles they have played in your life.

These awards come in the form of a slideshow and there are even templates to help you create your own slideshows such as 'Bestie', 'Great Listener' or 'Knows how to make me laugh'.
