Face Facebook: Cool Tips and Tricks
|February 26, 2012||Posted by admin under Facebook, Social Media|
If you are a regular Facebooker, you would be familiar with almost all stuff there is on Facebook: adding friends, updating status, posting on walls, liking comments etc. That’s pretty much it, right? Not really, there is a lot more you can do on Facebook. Here are some lesser-known tips to make your Facebook experience even easier.
1. Add a Dislike button
A lot of people want a dislike button on Facebook so that they can dislike some stupid status updates. But can YOU handle a dislike button with your update? If you can, you can have a dislike button. And not just that, you can also have love, hate, and laugh-at buttons. Search for the Status Magic app and install it. Now you can add your own options to your statuses.
2. Hide status updates from some people
You can use Facebook privacy settings to choose who can see your status update. It’s pretty easy. Type your status update. Now click on the arrow next to ‘Post’. A drop down menu will open up. Select Custom from it.
Now you can add options of who can view or post, and who cannot. Simple.
3. Schedule Facebook Updates
Some articles might suggest you to use Sendible, but I don’t prefer using it. The best option is to use Later Bro service that is free of cost. You can just login using your Facebook profile and select your time zone. Then type the status update and the date and time when you want to say it, and it will be done.
4. Add cool symbols to status
There are many emoticons that you can use with Facebook, but apart from them, there are other symbols as well. If you are on Windows, you can use different key combinations with Alt. Hold Alt and number key combinations to generate symbols.
For example, Alt+ 1 + 4 will make ♫. Experiment with other symbols.
5. Upside down text
To write in an upside down way, simply visit upsidedowntext.com and type your status there. In the lower box, you can see the upside down text. Copy it and paste in your status or comments.
6. Trick your friends
Point your friends to the profile: http://facebook.com/profile.php?=73322363
It’s actually the profile of the person who clicks on it. You can write: “This is the profile of my best friend: http://facebook.com/profile.php?=73322363”. And everyone will see their own profile there. (Make sure you remove the thumbnail Facebook automatically adds). More fun if you write “I hate this person”… You’ll get a lot of comments!
