How to use symbols?
To use - just copy-paste symbols that you like.
Notice that there are some right-to-left written symbols here, and if you put them - characters you put after them may appear before them. Tricky ones ^.^
I see squares and ?'s
Some facebook symbols may not appear on some browsers/systems. They may show up as squares (boxes), or ?'s.
On my system I found Firefox and Opera displaying most symbols, Safari showing (only a bit) smaller number of symbols, Chrome even less and Internet Explorer.. just out-of-the-league. Explorer is a really bad browser in every way, so I guess if you're using it - you should better get some other one I've mentioned.
"Combos"Also, strangely, it seems like some symbols can form "combos" (like in video games) =) and don't work if you put them one after another. So if you see some of your symbols turning into squares after you have put some new symbol into the input field - that might be a problem. To solve it just press "Ctrl" + "Z" and don't put these troublemaker symbols. Or put them in a first place, or well, it looks like they work if you put them in separate lines.
ExampleDoesn't work right:
Remember, that you may not see all the symbols anyway, and that's okay. Though, if you won't see A LOT of them - you'll have to get another system or take a look at the next answer.
Are there compatible facebook symbols?
You are experiencing problems with symbols not showing up? You should better take a look at Facebook Alt codes. Those are ASCII symbols. They work on absolutely all systems.
Facebook alt codes
You can input ASCII symbols right from your keyboard. Do this using Facebook Alt codes. In this way you can write a part of facebook symbols that is visible on any system. You can make ASCII art using these characters.
Big font for symbols on Facebook?
It seems like there is no way to style your text in facebook profile. Seems that you won't be able to make your text symbols bigger on facebook. Neither to paint them with the color you want. Maybe in notes or something..
On this website I make them larger using CSS and HTML's "span" and "large" tags. You can make symbols bigger on MySpace in the same way. If you run a blog - you can enlarge them in your WYSIWYG editor there.
