IF you’re a fan of Facebook you won’t want to miss out on trying these five useful tricks.
From changing your font to muting annoying friends, these tips could make your experience of the app a whole lot better.
Fancy Facebook fonts
There’s a popular font generator that people use to make their Facebook posts stand out.
It’s called Cool Fancy Text Generator and you just need to type in your text, select the font you want and then copy it to your Facebook post.
Send voice messages on Messenger
Voice messages are very popular on WhatsApp but did you know you can also send them over Facebook Messenger?
Open the relevant chat and hold down the microphone to send a quick voice note.
Mute annoying friends
If you don’t want to delete or block someone on Facebook but you find their posts really annoying, you could try muting them.
Click on the three dots in the upper right hand corner of an annoying post and select to hide all posts from that person or ‘Snooze’ them for 30 days.
This should clear up your feed for content you actually want to see.
Control Facebook notifications
Facebook notifications can get annoying, especially if you hear about them on email, SMS and push notifications on your phone.
To control this, go to ‘Settings & Privacy’, ‘Settings’, ‘Notifications’ and then toggle on or off how you would like to receive notifications.
You can turn them off altogether if you so wish.
Use Facebook ‘Text Delights’
Facebook sometimes includes text based ‘Easter eggs’ for certain words.
If you’re commenting on someone’s post and write words like “congratulations” or “rad”, you may notice they show up in a different color.
This means you’ve found a Text Delight.
It means if you click on the highlighted word a fun animation pops up.
For “congratulations”, the animation is usually balloons flying across your screen.
