In this article, you’ll start by learning how to change font size and color in Facebook posts. Would you be willing to try a new trick on your Facebook friends? Okay, how about changing the size and color of the text on your Facebook posts? With the advancements to the platform’s user interface today, you should be able to do all of these effortlessly.
If you’re a basic Facebook user, you should know that the social media platform limits you to a certain kind of font for all posts. However, you can always break the limits and explore the possibilities of Facebook without following the style guide.
How to Change the Font Size in a Facebook Post
If you’re only trying to achieve a bigger font, you don’t need any complicated procedures to do that. Facebook has introduced a feature that makes your post in a large enough font to stand out from the regular text you’re used to on the Facebook app.
The only known way to get Facebook’s official larger font size is by keeping your posts short. While there isn’t any specific character count recommended by Facebook, you should generally try to stop typing at the point when Facebook defaults the size of your post back to normal.
The general length of a Facebook post before automatically changes to a smaller size. If you need longer posts, you should generally avoid using line breaks as much as possible, as it appears that there’s a maximum number of line breaks before the font size defaults back to normal again.
The catch to this is that you can’t write short posts in smaller font sizes. Ever since Facebook rolled out the updates, all posts within the character count will automatically take on the bigger font size, unless you use some workarounds.
Some workarounds to avoid defaulting to the larger font size are adding a picture, a video, or a location. But since this guide is teaching how to change the font size on your Facebook post, I see no reason why you’ll ever need to do those.
How to Change the Font Size on Facebook
If you’re browsing through Facebook and everything just appears too tiny to you, you’re not alone. Thousands of other people also think Facebook’s default font size is too small to be the default, and they’ve developed a workaround to help you increase the font size.
Fortunately, you don’t even have to install extensions or use any external untrustworthy apps. You can simply increase the font size of the browser you’re using and it should automatically reflect on the website’s interface.
On most desktop browsers, you should be able to change the font size of the Facebook app by holding down the Control button and pressing down “+” repeatedly until you achieve your desired font size. If you’re on a Mac, you can do the same thing, but with the command key instead of Control.
Alternatively, you can get into your browser’s menu and manually increase the zoom level to a comfortable one. For Chrome, you can click on the menu button denoted by three vertical dots to open up the menu. Then, click on the “+” icon to the right of “100%” to increase the font size until it looks comfortable to you.
If you’re using the Facebook app on your smartphone, however, you can change the font size by changing your device’s font size. Head into the settings app to find your display settings where the option to change your device’s font size typically resides.
