Boldface and Underline Text in Facebook Chat

Posted: May 12, 2009 in Computers and Internet

A bit off topic, but… I just noticed you can boldface and underline text in your Facebook chat conversations.

To boldface text, simply wrap it in asterisks, like so:

I am *boldfacing* text

To underline text, simply wrap it in underscore marks, like so:

I am _underlining_ text

You can even combine styles, like boldfaced underlining, by putting

I am *_boldface underlining_* text

Example of text formatting in Facebook chat

The formatting does not appear to work in status updates. Oh well.
