Short Tutorial/FAQ – Why Are Facebook Text Posts Bigger?

Question: Lately when using Facebook, I've noticed that some status updates appear larger. Is it just me? What's going on?

Download Graphics to View Answer: It's not just you! While this feature hasn't been rolled out for everyone, some Facebook users are seeing larger typeface sizes in posts in their feed. The larger typeface is size 24, while the normal one is 14. The larger typeface appears to be used when text posts are 34 characters or fewer, and only when your post is just text (with no attachments like videos or articles). No one knows for sure why Facebook made this change, but experts have speculated it's to draw attention to more personal posts.
