We all have our Facebook accounts, it is probably one of the very first social media platforms where we all signed up in the early days. Now after a decade, Facebook has evolved a lot in many aspects. They have bought Instagram and Whatsapp which are among the most popular social media platforms. Speaking of Whatsapp, a few years ago, we saw Whatsapp giving its users an option to type their texts in italic, bold, underlined or strikethrough style. Something which most of the social media platforms doesn’t allow doing so. Although there are some third-party apps and websites that do allow us to customize the texts, officially Facebook and Twitter doesn’t seem to allow that as of now. However, we have found some unofficial ways through which you can update Facebook posts and status with different styles of texts.

For writing Facebook posts or updates, YayText is one of the most popular online services which people can use to customise their texts before updating on Facebook. But some Android apps are even better text generators than yay text websites. These Android apps can even convert normal fonts into fancy-looking ones with a press of a button.
