How to Make Music Notes on Facebook

By Sara Hickman

Facebook.com is a social networking site that allows you to post messages on your site page, or "Wall," and those that belong to your friends. Instead of typing a generic status update or comment to a friend on Facebook, you can spice it up with a variety of symbols. When writing about music or sharing lyrics with your friends, you can type a music note in the text box. The only way to create the music note symbol is by using the correct sequence of keys.

Step 1

Open your Internet browser and log on to your Facebook account using your email and password.

Step 2

Click on your friend's profile and Wall text box or your status update box.

Step 3

Press the "Num Lock" key on your keyboard and ensure that it is activated.

Step 4

Hold down the "Alt" key and type the numbers "1" and "3" at the same time to make a single music note. For a double music note, hold down the "Alt" key and type the numbers "1" and "4" at the same time.
