Facebook Chat Smileys, Emoticons and Text Formatting.

Written by FBHive on . Posted in hivefeatured, Tips & Tricks

chatthumbThere’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!

Text Formatting

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

Smileys/Emoticons. AKA: How to make pictures on facebook chat!

So there you have it! The emoticons marked with an asterix are not contained in the normal CSS sprites, and therefore are hidden as far as we are concerned.

    Can I simply say what a comfort to uncover someone who genuinely knows what they are
    discussing online. You actually realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    A lot more people should look at this and understand this side
    of your story. I was surprised you’re not more popular given that you definitely possess the gift.
