So far so good, let us see how to change the default font face of the Facebook profile.
Facebook uses Lucida Grande 11px as the default font face and size. After a while it becomes monotonous. Also, Facebook does not allow special characters, symbols, peculiar capitalization, etc., as part of its security feature. Now, by adopting a few simple tricks you can change the profile name into different fonts.
Trick 1 – Download & Install Chrome’s font changer app
If you are a Chrome user then your efforts are highly minimized as you have good apps that help you to change the profile name fonts. Facebook Font Changer is one such app that can be installed on the Chrome browser. Visit the Chrome web store and download this free app and follow the instructions given therein to install it. This app boasts of providing 500 font types which is pretty cool.
Trick 2 – Install Facebook font apps
Alternatively, you can search Facebook itself to find font changing apps. Install them and enjoy the new fonts for your profile name. To do this, first log in to your Facebook account and visit the Apps center. Search for font changers and install the right app.
Trick 3 – Use Character Map
This is pretty simple to do for Microsoft Windows users. Click on Start menu and select All Programs. Then select Accessories and System tools. Here you select Character Map and choose the font style that you wish to have and type your name by using the font. Now copy the name and paste the same in the Facebook profile. You could now see the new font replacing the default font of Facebook.
A Word of Caution
Facebook does not allow you to change the profile name more than 4 times. If you do so your profile can be withheld by the website. Keep this in mind before you attempt to change the profile name.
