Facebook might appear to be the master of peek-a-boo.
They are often known for “releasing” features like this and then taking them away.
But in reality, they are testing new features with a small group of users, when a news publication will pick it up and confuse everyone who doesn’t have it.
- What ever happened to the social network aSmallWorld?
- Qu'avez-vous marqué au test d'aptitudes sociales 4chan (lien dans la description)?
- Is anything funny on LinkedIn?
- Is having multiple accounts on social networks an example of a lack of integrity?
- Quel est l'avantage des médias sociaux?
This is another one of these scenarios.
You may have seen other people styling page posts in the past, but it’s not publicly available.
Right now, the mark down editor / the ability to style text is only available for two use cases:
Events and Notes.
So to answer your question now, you can’t create page posts with this styling yet.
To format text in an event.
Go to the event that you are interesting and click the list icon as seen below.
Once you click that, you can utilize the mark down language to style text inside of Facebook events.
Styling text can also be done within Facebook Notes.
If you’re unaware of what notes are, they are essentially Facebook’s version of little blog posts.
(If you’re a marketer – they get really good SEO ‘juice’)
To create a note, and utilize the markdown,
- Access the notes section in a profile or Page.
- Click Add Note.
- Format your note, use fancy styling and select your privacy settings.
- Click Publish.
