Facebook is a social networking site where you can share brief status updates and notes with other users. You can make your updates, notes and Facebook profile more eye-catching with text effects such as mirror writing. It's possible to write reversed text character by character, but far quicker to use a text generator. Text generators are sites that allow you to type in your desired message and then apply the effect you want automatically. Once the generator has converted your text, you can copy it to your clipboard to use on Facebook.
