Facebook Notes gets more beautiful and customizable

FBtutorial.com — Facebook Notes, which was originally released as an extension in August 2006 so users could publish posts that exceeded the character limit on status updates; now gets more beautiful and customizable. This new improvement comes after Facebook Notes was redesigned August this year, approximately 9 years after its initial release.

Facebook Notes is a simple word-processing feature for Facebook users. Notes lets you write full-length posts with HTML formatting, tagging and pictures. People use Facebook Notes to publish content that is too long to post to your Wall or that requires formatting.

Isaac Salier-Hellendag, User Interface Engineer at Facebook, on Sept. 25 announced the new updates coming to Facebook Notes:

We’re rolling out an update to make notes on Facebook more beautiful and customizable. Notes are now an even better way to write a longer post and share with anyone — whether it’s a small group of friends or everyone on Facebook.


With this update, you can add a cover photo that represents what your note is all about. You can caption and resize photos, and format your text into headers, quotes or bullets.


For instance, you can recap your summer vacation or an important time in your life to update the people you care about. You can voice your opinion on something you saw in the news or write an open letter you want to share with the world. You can share a special recipe with a bulleted list of ingredients and photos of each step.


Facebook has always been a place to share your thoughts with friends, and notes are a meaningful way for people to do that. For example, Jeff Nunokawa enjoys creative writing, and every day since 2007, he has written a note inspired by a different quote. With this update, Jeff has a better way of bringing his words to life and connecting with his friends on Facebook.
