Facebook Colored Text and Facebook Text Animations Are Called Facebook Text Delight

For reasons that I don’t care to get into, Facebook keeps trying to tell me what to do.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m grateful they changed their tone and now ask me “What’s on your mind?” instead of telling me to share something. Plus, I have to admit, it has some amazing features. One of my favorites is that it knows everyone’s birthdays and reminds me of them.

In fact, just earlier today it told me about a friend’s birthday and in its bossy fashion, it told me to “send her good thoughts.”

So, while I was mumbling “you’re not the boss of me” I went ahead and wrote, “Have a rad one!”

I hit Post, and my birthday greeting popped onto her wall. However, this post looked a little different. The word “rad” was bright pink!

(Some say it looks purple but it is pink)

When I clicked on it, little thumb-up emojis popped up and took off across my screen, leaving colorful trails in their wake.

You’ve probably seen something similar if you’ve said “congratulations” to someone and I also saw a few words create wizardly sparks during the Harry Potter anniversary. So even though this wasn’t brand new, I have to admit, I was still pretty impressed. I was also very curious about what other words would be so…delightful.

After a few Google searches and some digging with the Developer Tool, I discovered that this Facebook feature is called “Text Delight.”

Currently, it appears that there are three text animations that you can trigger your Facebook posts or comments.
