How to Make Facebook Status Symbols
Let's begin by covering the steps of making the symbols through a Desktop computer and then we will show you how to do it on a laptop as well.
How to make status symbols for Facebook on a Desktop Computer
Step 1 - Locate the left 'Alt' key button on your desktop computer keyboard. This is important as the Facebook symbols will not work if you use the right Alt or any other "Alt' key.
Step 2 - Press and hold the left 'Alt' key and while holding it you input the number of the emoticon or ascii symbol you want to make.
** Note** You must use the numbers on the right hand side of your keyboard where the "Num Lock" button is located. Make sure the "Num lock" button is turned ON so that you can enter them. If you use the numbers under where the F1, F2 buttons are then the symbols will not work.
Step 3 - As you enter the numbers be sure to keep one finger holding down the left alt key and input the numbers together in sequence. If you stop during the input then the correct code will not come out. By this we mean if you use the number 22 code but stop in between then the symbol for number the number 2 code will come out instead.
Try it now. Hold the Alt key and keep pressing the number 3 button. The # 3 button is the code number for the ♥ heart symbol. (Note that you must release the Alt key after the number is entered and keep entering the number if you want to make more than one of the symbols)
Great! If you did it correctly you will have made a line of hearts symbols just as this one. ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
How to make status symbols for Facebook on Laptop Computer
The steps to making Facebook symbols on a laptop are almost the same as with a Desktop
Step 1 - Locate, Press and hold the left 'Alt" key on your laptop's keyboard.
Step 2 - While holding down the Alt key, you need to also press and hold the Fn key as well.
Now while holding down bother the Alt and Fn keys, enter the number of the code you wish to make. See the list below to see the corresponding symbols for each number.
Tip: Press the number 3 as this will give you the famous Facebook heart symbol
Step 3 - If the emoticons or symbols are not coming out then you are using the wrong numbers. You must use the numbers located on the right side of your laptop's keyboard. These are mostly always written next to the letters U, I, O etc and may be in a different color. The numbers with the F1, F2 and so on are the wrong numbers to press and if you use those the symbols will not work.
If for some reason you cannot get it to work then do not worry. It may take some practicing. But for now you can simply do what most people do and which is by far the easiest way to make Facebook status symbols and that is by hitting copy & then paste.
♪ = Musical note
♫ = Big musical note
♥ = Black heart
► = Arrow tip left
◄ = Arrow tip right
☺= Smile face
♣ = Clubs
☻ = Black smile face
You simply select the symbol you wish to use from the list we have provided here or the ones above this paragraph or under. You then right click on it with your mouse. While holding down your mouse you highlight it, select it and copy it. Now go to your Facebook or Twitter wall and simply press paste on your status update, messages or chat box. One cool thing about use these symbols on Facebook is that even though Facebook symbols are not part of Facebook itself you can still use them and insert them into your chat window, private messages, your status updates and most importantly your comments.
You can use combinations of numbers and Facebook symbols to create your own characters such as we did here ▬► Tips21.com ◄▬ . Using the numbers 22 plus the number 16 we created an arrow as you can see. As you get better with practice you will be able to make more intricate symbols and if you practice hard enough you can even create ascii characters such as this one here

In case you are wondering ASCII stands for "American Standard Code for Information Interchange"
There may be times when you will copy such characters like these and when you try and paste and insert them into the Twitter or Facebook wall they will come out displaced and all wrong. Let's say we want to copy & paste this "LOVE" text art into a comment reply, your wall or on someone's status..
as you can see here the words are displaced and not lined up correctly This will happen because they will not line up properly as your Facebook name (or in this case ours Tips21.com) gets in the way. The easiest way to fix this is by typing a point or period "." before you enter the text art symbol. Then you hit ENTER or 'Hit + enter'. This will create the space you need.
If you notice now that one little tiny period has changed the whole outcome and looks of the status & comment. Just keep practicing and playing with the characters, the symbols, emoticons and ASCII text art until you get it right. Keep in mind that all ascii is not the same so practice will make perfect.

The same goes for the heart symbol. ♥♥ The heart symbol is by far one of the most used since it is so simple to make and so little. Unless you use a big heart of course.
