So last week we all had fun playing with facebook emoticons that can be used in comments and the character codes that can be used in messages and chat.

But what about your status updates, what can you use there to make it a little fancier and a lot more engaging.

You may have already seen others using this script and always wondered how to do it yourself.

I have compiled this graphic to show you just some of the fun ones. They are very simple to use, and all start with the alt Key (which you must hold down whilst pressing the other keys) then the + key and then the number. The graphics are small (not as large as the emoticons) but you can create all sorts of interesting text  in your facebook status using these codes.

UPDATE: I have been able to use these keys without having to use the + key.
