How Do I Make My Facebook Status Colorful?

Your Facebook Status Is About to Become More Colorful

If you're starting to see colorful status updates on your news feed, don't get too alarmed. It looks like a Facebook feature rolling out to make your status update stand out a bit more.

Unlike Facebook's other new features, which include camera effects, Facebook Stories, and direct messaging, this one is much more simpler to understand. Start typing in the "What's on your mind?" box and then pick one of the eight background colors.

This works on both desktop and mobile, so you can do this to your status updates at any time. We've reached out to Facebook to find out more about this feature. If you don't have it on your profile, see what the finished product looks like below.

Maybe this will make status updates popular again? Either way, just remember how ridiculous Facebook statuses can sound.
