How to Make Music Notes on Facebook Status

Special symbols, called Unicode characters, aren't found on your keyboard, but you can use them by copying them from the the Windows 7 character map application. To insert special symbols, such as music notes, in your Facebook status, you just need to create the symbols you want, then copy them and paste them into Facebook's status update box.
