Facebook Chat Secrets Finally Revealed

Here’s how to make emoticons (smileys), as well as underlined and bold text in faceboot chat. Unfortunately, these tricks dont work elsewhere on facebook (outside of chat).

For bold text, use asterisks:

  • *your text here* = your text here

For underlined text, use underscores

  • _your text here_ = your text here

I dicovered these by accident. Got me wondering what else is hiding in facebook chat.

Here’s how you to get emoticons. Very big thank you to Jesse at 20 bits for going into the source code and finding all of these.


“Putnam” is facebook engineer Chris Putnam

Into entrepreneurship, programming and/or scuba? Why not follow Jesse from 20 Bits (@jessefarmer), he does all of the above.

And for fun, of course follow me.
