Published on 23 March 18

You may have noticed that in the past few weeks, there are millions of Facebook users are typing BFF in the Facebook comment section to see the magic.Lots users have tried this out to check if it works.

The post claims that if the letters BFF appear in green, it means your account is safe but if it does not, it means your account is at risk of being hacked.

This, in fact, is another Fake News that bump and circulate by a lot of users that didn’t check their facts.

But what is this? And why some users manage to see green words but some don’t?

This is actually a built-in feature in Facebook call the Text Delights which highlights some words in different colors or some might even have animation like the below.

However, there is some grain of truth to it as Text Delight may not work if you haven't updated your Facebook app or Internet browser, so you would be less secure and easier to hack than those who have updated. But, even if Text Delight does work, it does not mean your Facebook account cannot be hacked, as this relies more on your security and privacy settings.
Now that you know this is actually a Facebook feature, Text Delight actually has other text animations as well, including:

  • Best Wishes
  • Congratulations
  • You Got This
So next time, check your fact before sharing fake news guys.
