Do you know that you can use symbol characters in your Facebook updates and chat messages? There are quite a few shape symbols you can use that you will find listed below.
If you love geometry and math, you should be able to find a use for these characters. If not, you can use shapes to draw pictures or draw attention to your updates. Or maybe send someone a little love with a heart shape.
Here are some shape symbols you can use to add a little something extra to your status updates.
Triangle Pointing Up
You can use the triangle to point up at something on the top of the screen or just to draw attention to your status message. Use it anywhere you would use an up arrow.
Triangle Pointing Down
This triangle points downward and can be used anywhere you would use a down arrow. Perhaps you are trying to get people to look for a previous status message further down the page so you don’t have to repeat yourself.
These tall rectangles are great for drawing pictures. If you are talented, you can use them to make a design in your status message. It might take some practice to get good at it.
You can also use the dotted rectangle to draw pictures on Facebook, or maybe to show people you’re a little bit dotty.
The horizontal rectangle is actually a half-filled vertical rectangle. Only the bottom half has been filled in.
This tiny circle could come in handy for a lot of things. You could use them as bubbles, balls or anything else that is round.
The most common use of the heart is love, of course. You can use this to tell someone how much you care.
