Alt codes don’t work for all of the music notes shown below, but you can use any of them by copying and pasting the symbol from this article into your status update or chat box. As you can see, there are several musical notes and symbols that you can use.
Music Symbols for Facebook
Quarter Note Symbol
This is the symbol for a quarter note, and it is probably the most frequently used note symbol on Facebook. You can also use it on Twitter or anywhere else you can paste text.
Eighth Note Symbol
The eighth note looks like a quarter note with a flag on top. This is a great symbol to use if you like a fancier look.
Eighth Notes Symbol
Two eighth notes that occur next to each other in music are illustrated by two notes joined with a bar on top.
Sixteenth Notes Symbol
When you have two sixteenth notes together, the symbol has an extra bar.
The flat symbol tells a musician to play the note a half-step lower, but for your Facebook updates you can use it to tell people you have a ‘flat’ tire.
You could use the natural symbol anywhere you would use the word ‘natural.’ In music, it means to play the natural version of the note rather than playing it flat or sharp.
Now you can tell your chat buddies to be ‘sharp.’ This symbol tells the musician to play the note a half-step higher.
Now you know how to display all of the most common musical symbols in your Facebook status message or chat. If you know of any others, tell us about them in the comments.
