There’s a stack of guides all over the net listing all the smileys you can send in Facebook and many forum posts discussing the formatting options. We’re yet to find one good one that lumps it all into one page, with the latest smiley codes, in a nice easy to read format, so we’ve decided to oblige. If you know of any fb chat smileys we are missing, let us know!
The first half of the article dumbs down how to send both bold and underlined text in Facebook Chat windows, and the second half lists every smiley and emoticon, including the hidden ones!
To make your text bold, place it between two asterisk characters.
*Stop Yelling* will display in Facebook Chat as: Stop Yelling
To underline your text, place it between two underscore characters.
_Important Point_ will display in Facebook Chat as: Important Point
To underline and make bold, place the text between both asterisk and underscore characters.
_*STOP*_ will display in Facebook Chat as: STOP
