There are well over a hundred special characters built right into Windows that you can use in Facebook status updates and chat. You can even put these symbols into your display name on Facebook. Once of the special icons available is a pencil. This symbol is great for poets, writers and teachers.
If one pencil isn’t enough, you’re in luck. You can choose from three different pencil symbols to use on Facebook. Here are the three pencil symbols.
Pencil Symbols for Facebook
Diagonal Pointing Down
This symbol is a picture of a pencil positioned so that it points to the right. This pencil is great to start a line with. You can add dashes after it to give the appearance that the pencil is making a line.
This symbol also works great to give the illusion of drawing a line, or you can just add it to draw attention to what you wrote.
Diagonal Pointing Up
This symbol shows a pencil pointing upwards as if someone was reaching up to draw on the wall. I hope you don’t use it to encourage graffiti! However, if you want to, you can use assorted characters such as asterisks after the pencil to make it look like someone is doodling with it.
Well, that’s it for the pencil symbols. If you know of any other cool Facebook symbols, please tell us about them by leaving a comment.
