How Can I Format My Font in Facebook Notes?

by Shawn Farner

Format Facebook Notes, which are basically Facebook's take on blog posts, using a variety of HTML commands. These commands enable formatting options such as bold, italicized or underlined text; large text; and em dashes. Adding formatting to your Facebook Notes can help you better convey your message than if you were using standard text.

Step 1

Sign in to your Facebook account at Facebook.com.

Step 2

Click the "Notes" link on the left side of the screen to access Facebook's Notes application.

Step 3

Create a new note by clicking the "+ Write a Note" button at the top of the screen.

Step 4

Enter the title of your note into the "Title" field and the body of the note into the "Body" field. You can only format text in the note's body.

Step 5

Make text bold by surrounding it with these two tags: and . For example, a bold sentence would look like this: This is a bold sentence.

Step 6

Add italicized (slanted) text by placing text between the and tags, like this: This is an italicized sentence.

Step 7

Underline your text by typing it in between the and tags. For example: This is an underlined sentence.

Step 8

Create big text using and , or create small text using and , like this: This sentence has a big font. This sentence has a small font.

Step 9

Type "—" to create an em dash, which is a long dash. For example: Set apart text in a sentence—like this—with em dashes.

Click the "Publish" button to publish your note when you're finished formatting the text.
