Facebook Neat Stuff You Can Do

Don't forget to share!

My favorite feature is the comments on Facebook. However, I use them all. Below are my most often used Facebook features.

Facebook will render all the usual face emoticons into pictorial representations. But there are a whole bunch you may not be using.

(y) = thumbs-up ‘like’ symbol
(^^^) = a great white shark
:|] = a robot
:poop: = well, you know
<(“) = a penguin

You can use these in posts, chats, and comments, but they don’t always render in mobile. You can find a full rundown of Facebook emoticons here—the kind you can use by clicking the smiley-face icon that brings up a menu of all the emoji you’re used to seeing on your smartphone.

Facebook Emoji

Our emoticon list contains standard emoticons + all new Facebook Emoji! You can remember and type in the codes for standard emoticons, but you can’t type in the emoji codes with your standard keyboards.

To use rest of the emojis, click on it above and their codes will be instantly copied, then simply use paste to post your selection on Facebook and other networks.

Emoji meanings

If you are still baffled with meanings of emojis, simply move your pointer above any emoji to show its meaning.

Yes, we have a wonderful collection of more than 2000 beautiful emojis and emoticons for you to post on Facebook! Scroll down and you can try them right away!

Cool Comments

Bff, Bffs

Mentioning your bestie makes clapping hands appear on the screen! Sweet!

Best Wishes

Wishing someone all the best in English, and in many other languages, will surprise your pal with colorful confetti!

You Got This, You Can Do It, You’ve Got This

We all need to hear those words! Support from a friend is so important! Now you can encourage your friend even more with a bouncing thumbs-up emoji!

Congratulations, Congrats

In addition, congratulating people in many languages will make them excited with colorful confetti and balloons popping up on the screen.

XOXO

We use those a lot, don’t we? If there is something missing, it has to be the romantic emoji of flying hearts. Romantic and cute. Type “xoxo”, and the person you’re addressing your kisses to won’t only see X and O letters, but red hearts floating up the screen as well.

RAD

This is fun. It makes a sound as 2 thumbs up rockets across the page.

Download a Copy of All Your Facebooking

Want your own personal copy of everything you’ve ever shared on Facebook? I’m talking, everything: Every post, every image, every video, every message, and chat conversation (not to mention all the settings you probably don’t even think about)? You can do that! Go to Settings > General and click “Download a copy of your Facebook data” at the bottom. Follow the directions from there.

This feature lets you take a trip down memory lane, or just save your info should you ever decide to delete your Facebook account. And of course, it reveals exactly what Facebook has saved about you. You might be surprised.

Edit Your Ad Preferences

Do you hate-follow any celebrities or personalities on Facebook? A while back, I gave former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin a follow. I was just curious more than anything. But then I noticed that the ads on Facebook feed began to… change. Let’s just say, I started getting ads for things I really wasn’t all that interested in.

Facebook’s business is built around providing marketers with detailed information on its users’ interests, which Facebook’s algorithms insinuate based on—among other things—celebrities and personalities they’ve actively followed. However, if you “like” something on Facebook that’s a little out of your usual media diet, you also have the ability to keep your ad experience in check.

To curate your ads

Just go to Settings > Ads > Your Interests. You can delete an interest simply by hitting the X for Remove on the right of each interest. Under the “Advertisers, you’ve interacted with” tab, you’ll see all the advertisers whose ads you’ve clicked on and/or were provided your information; remove anyone you don’t like in here with high prejudice.

Under the “whose website or app you’ve used” and “whom you’ve visited” sub-tabs, you can even choose to stop seeing ads from a particular advertiser altogether. Unfortunately, you can’t just do a “remove all.”

See All Your Friend Requests, Ever

What about all the people you asked to be your friend who ignored or deleted your request? Facebook keeps track of that. At the top of the Facebook page click the Friend Requests icon (two people in silhouette). You’ll see a list of suggested: “People You May Know.” At the bottom, click the “See All” link. On the next page, under New Friend Requests (assuming you don’t have any) click “View Sent Requests.” Then you get a list of the people who hate you. Or maybe they just don’t check Facebook that much. Probably both.

Upload ‘360’ Pics and Video

You’ve probably seen the occasional immersive “360” degree photos (and some videos) popping up in your Facebook feed. On the desktop version, viewers can explore a field of vision in all directions using their mouse or keyboard. On mobile, users can pivot their device to look all around. It’s not just for specialists—you also have the opportunity to upload your own 360-degree images and video. Use your smartphone to capture a panorama picture or “photosphere” and upload it to Facebook—the social network does the rest to make it easily visible to your friends.

Transfer Files Over Facebook Messenger

If you open a Facebook Messenger window—the small one on Facebook.com—there’s a little paper clip icon along the bottom. This allows you to Add Files—it uploads and sends a file directly from your computer. The receiver can just click on the included link and download from there. Of course, never download anything from someone you don’t know. (On Messenger.com, the icon looks like a pile of pictures; hover over it to see the Add Files designation.)

Make a Frame

“Camera Effects” allows third-party developers to create Snapchatesque photo/video overlays. While the AR-like video overlay platform necessitates some technical know-how, any schmo with a command of the basics has the ability to create a static frame. To create your own static photo overlay, click on “Create a Frame” in the left-hand rail (or the menu in mobile) and click the “Create a Frame” button to enter the Camera Effects Platform.
