This instance became supplied with user Scott Grenney (and shared by Matt Navarra). As you can see, while posting on a laptop, Grenney has the new choice to add ‘Text Effects’ below the main put-up area (and worth noting, Grenney is based inside the UK, even though we have no data on the specifics of the take a look at at this degree).

Nonetheless, it may make your Feed quite messy to search if some of your connections are particularly obsessed with expressing their ‘aptitude’ via the options supplied. Facebook hasn’t launched stats on how many people presently use the one’s colored backgrounds on posts.

We will replace you as we hear.
