How to Make Things in Italics on Facebook

By Diana Braun

Facebook is a free social-networking site that allows users to send messages, post comments, share photos and send notes to friends and family members inside their network. The notes feature of Facebook allows members to share a story or news update with their network and is the only thing to which users can apply special formatting through the use of a built-in text editor. Users can change the text style to underline, bold and italics.

Step 6

Highlight the text you want to appear italicized.

Step 7

Click the "I" button from the text editor toolbar located above the body of the text.
