How to Use Bold & Italic Text on Facebook Wall Posts & Messages

By Erin McManaway

Facebook is an online social network that allows you to connect with friends and communities over the Internet. Normally, you cannot type special text, such as bold or italics, on your Facebook wall. However, you can use the Bold Text Facebook app to post messages on your wall with special formatting. You can use this formatting to help set your announcements and updates apart from other wall posts on your Facebook news feed.

Step 1

Log into your Facebook account.

Step 2

Type "bold text" in the Facebook search bar and press the "Enter" button. This will automatically take you to the Bold Text application.

Step 3

Click the "Go to App" button at the top of the page, then click "Allow."

Step 4

Type your message in the "Message" text box. You will see the text appear in the sample below the text box. The application automatically creates the message in bold.

Step 5

Click the "Italics" button to place the message in italic text as well.

Step 6

Ensure that "My Own Wall" is selected from the "To" drop-down menu.

Step 7

Click the "Send" button to post the text to your Facebook wall.
