How to Blow a Kiss on Facebook Chat

By Robert Schrader

Blowing a kiss online -- in other words, sending your friend a kissing emoticon -- is a simple, effective way of online flirting. Although forming such a symbol within chat programs like AOL Instant Messenger and Windows Live Messenger has long been possible, Facebook chat hasn't always been capable of transforming the symbols you use into the kissing face. Blow a kiss to someone on Facebook chat just as you would using any other chat program.

Step 1

Log in to your Facebook account. Click the "Chat" button in the lower right corner of the Facebook screen.

Step 2

Click the name of the online friend to whom you want to blow the kiss. To send your chat message in real time, the user to whom you're sending must be online.

Step 3

Type ":*" or ":-*" to make the kissing face on Facebook chat. Hit the "Enter" key to watch your symbols transform into the emoticon.
