2014 UPDATE: Does Facebook even allow notes anymore? Possibly not by the time I finish typing this. Anyway, if you don’t want to futz with html and it’s not working, try simply pasting in the url into the note without wrapping it in tags. It may just be that FB will display it as a live link anyway!
Here’s an example of a link embedded in a Facebook Note
1. Create your note on your Facebook profile. Then, in another window on your browser, find the page you want to link to. Select that page’s url and copy it.
2. Go back to your note and find the text you want to transform into a link. Place your cursor in front of the first letter and type in these characters:
3. Now, after the first set of quote marks, paste in the url you just copied and then put another set of quotation marks followed by a bracket after it like so:
4. Next, go to the last character in the string of text you want to link to and after it type:
NOTE: I have had a couple of readers tell me that this didn’t work for them. If you try it and it doesn’t work as a link, please leave a comment below. Facebook has an annoying way of changing things around so it never hurts to test again once in a while.
