How to Have a Cool Font for Facebook

There are many online generators that let you create cool text effects to use for your Facebook status updates, notes and chat. Technically you can't change the font on Facebook. What you can do is use special symbols called Unicode characters. You can type these in using your keyboard but this is labour-intensive and the method varies between different operating systems. A much easier technique is to use online text generators. These use code such as JavaScript to convert everything you type into symbols. You can then copy and paste the converted text into Facebook.

Skill level:Easy

Things you need

Browser that displays Unicode characters, such as FirefoxFacebook accountUnicode text generators such as Encool or Weirdmaker

Instructions

1 Launch your browser, then navigate to Facebook and log in.

2 Open a new window or tab in your browser. In this window or tab, navigate to a Unicode symbol text generator. Use Ferodynamics' Pipe Writing Generator at ferodynamics.com/pipes.html, or Facebook Symbols' Carty and Tarty generators at fsymbols.com/generators for large text. For letter-like symbols you can use Facebook Symbols' Encool at fsymbols.com/generators or the Weirdmaker at Sherv.net at sherv.net/weirdmaker.html. For upside-down or backwards text use upsidedowntext.com or Sherv.net's Upside Down Writing tool at sherv.net/flip.html. For strikethrough text, you can use the Unicode strikethrough text tool at AdamVarga.com.

3 Type the text that you want to convert into the generator's text input field. Some convert the text automatically as you type; for others there's a button you'll need to press. Select the text using your mouse or by pressing Ctrl + A. Copy the text to your clipboard using the Edit menu or by hitting Ctrl + C.

4 Paste your converted text into the Facebook text field where you want it to appear, such as your status, a note or your profile. Use the Edit menu or hit Ctrl + V. Post the new entry.

Tips and warnings

Because not all browsers display the full set of Unicode characters, some people may not be able to read your cool text.

Large fonts like Carty may be too big for status updates.

Don't download font toolbars for Facebook. These can install spyware in your browser.
