How To: Bold & Underline Text in Facebook Chat

Bold & Underline Text in Facebook Chat

Many people are wondering how to change the font or the font color in Facebook chat, just to make an impact or to even distinguish the text from everyone else's.

Well, you can't change the color, but you can do other things.  As of now, you can write in bold and underline text by doing the following:

Step 1 Bolding in Facebook Chat

Use asterisks for *bold* and it would come out like this in the chat: bold.  Remember, you only have to put the * in front and after whatever you want to write.

Step 2 Underlining in Facebook Chat

Use underscores for _underlining_ and it would come out as underlining.  Just put the _ in front of and after the text you want to use.

Step 3 Bold & Underlined

If you what it to be bold and underlined, just type it like this: *_write your text_* which will come out like this: write your text.

Also, here is a list of emoticons you can use that Facebook supports:

:)  happy smile

o.O  confused face
