Facebook Chat Font Codes

A lot of people have asked how I underline and bold my text when I’m chatting to them in Facebook chat. Facebook only currently support underline and bold, not italic.

To create a BOLD statement, use stars and any text in between them will automatically BOLD. Example: “You *pathetic* imp!” will become “You pathetic imp”!.

To do underscores/underline just use _ as place holders.  Example: _HELLO_ will become HELLO.

Simple really.

You can also try these emoticons in chat:


:) - happy

:( - sad

:P - tongue

:D - grin

:O - gasp

;) - wink

8) - glasses

B) - sunglasses

:3 - cute/cat-like

>:( - grumpy

:/ - unsure

:’( - cry

3:) - devil

O:) - angel

:-* - kiss

^_^ - “kiki”

-_- - squint

O.o - confused

>:O - upset

<3 - heart

:v - Pacman

:|] - robot

:putnam: - Chris Putnam (Facebook Engineer)

(^^^) - Shark

<(") - Penguin

and in your usernames, how about hearts and musical notes?

  4. Sorry to hear that it didn’t work, but these are almost 3 years old now. In that time, FB have moved to using a different back end and changed stuff up a lot.
