Posted: December 26, 2011 in Mud's Tech Blog

#Facebook is rolling out new features to attract its users. This time the SN giant came up with another new feature of using anyone’s FB face as FB chat emoticon.

Emoticons no longer have to be anonymous smiley faces representing simple emotions. Facebook Chat now lets you use the profile picture of any user, official Page, or event on the service as an emoticon. Thus, now you can express more than custom smiley’s 🙂 😦 😀 😛 😉 For this only you have to follow these steps-

  1. Go to any profile, official Page, or event that you want to use as an emoticon.
  2. Look at the URL. Find the username or profile ID at the end of the URL such as “mud18” from, “CodeBeings”, or “4465465465″.
  3. Place that name or number in double brackets like [[mud18]]
  4. Enter that into a Facebook Chat or Message field. When you send it, the bracketed number or letters will appear as that person, Page, or event’s current profile picture.

You can send these custom emoticons from the web or mobile. But , you can’t use them in status updates, wall posts, or comments yet. You can also hover over the photos to view the username it belongs too.

Thus, now you can replace any noun or verb with anyone’s FB profile pic like-

Instead of writing wordpress you can simply put in chat [[WordPress]]  which will appear as:-

Example of good CMS is

Now, express more than custom emoticon. Enjoy Social Networking. See you soon 🙂 😉 bbye all!!!!
