Facebook is a popular social networking site that allows friends to connect and share photos, updates, videos and links. If you're making a status update on Facebook and want to try something a bit different, consider using strike-through text. Although normal HTML coding doesn't work on Facebook status updates, you can use a special online tool to create unicode strike-through text that you can copy and paste, then post for your friends to see.
