How to use Rich Text Formatting in Facebook

This article is also available as a Note on my Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/notes/rupesh-kumar/how-to-use-rich-text-in-facebook/10209037846448154

In order to use rich text formatting (bold, italic, mono, link) in Facebook, the text should be posted as a Note instead of a Post.  To add a note, do as follows:

Go to your Facebook Profile Page. Under More menu, go to Manage Sections.

1

The list of Sections will be displayed.  Check Notes and click Save.

2

Now, access Notes under More menu on the Profile Page. Go to More > Notes on Profile Page

3

On the Notes page, click Add Note button.

4

The Note composing window will open.  You can give a title to the note, select any typed text and apply bold, italic, mono and link effects. Images can be added and image captions can be given.

5  This is a sample note

A Note can be saved or published.  FB has autosave option too.

Happy RTF-ing on FB 🙂
