If you've seen a Facebook friend typing her status in what appears to be cursive letters, it might stump you because you cannot change Facebook's font. However, there is a trick to make it look like you are typing in cursive. This method involves using the "Character Map" from your operating system.
Click "Start" then choose "Accessories" from "All Programs." Click "System Tools" then "Character Map."
Choose "Arial" from the "Font" drop-down menu. Scroll down until you find characters that resemble cursive letters. Most "cursive" letters will be under the "Latin" and "Cyrillic" sections. There may not be a cursive-letter correspondent for each letter.
Create the phrase you want to show on Facebook using the Character Map. Click "Copy" beside the text you generated.
Open Facebook and right-click your mouse to "Paste" the letters to your Facebook. The letters will appear as cursive.
Arial is the only font Facebook uses. You cannot use a custom cursive font to update your status, add comments or any other Facebook activity.
