How to get a star symbol on Facebook
You can copy a star into your Facebook pages. (Hemera Technologies/ Images)

On a traditional web page, you can type a star symbol with HTML code, such as ☆. Facebook status updates and profile fields do not accept HTML code, so this method will not create a star symbol on Facebook. You can circumvent this limitation by copying a star symbol from your computer's Character Map and pasting the symbol directly into your Facebook profile or status update. The Character Map offers a number of different star designs from which to choose.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Click "Start," then "Programs," then "Accessories," then "System Tools," then "Character Map."

  2. 2

    Change the font to "Arial Unicode MS."

  3. 3

    Type "star" in the "Search For" box.

  4. 4

    Click "Search." A number of star symbols appear.

  5. 5

    Click on the star symbol you want to use. It zooms out. Click "Select," then click "Copy."

  6. 6

    Sign in to your Facebook account.

  7. 7

    Click inside the "Status Update" box or the profile field box into which you want to type the star symbol.

  8. 8

    Press "Ctrl-V" to paste the star you've copied.
