A lot of people ask how to add music notes or hearts to their status on twitter, facebook, blogs, etc.  There are many more symbols that you can add as well.  Here is how to do it.

1. Turn on Num Lock

2. Hold down ALT and a number on your numeric keypad

For example, you press ALT + 1 for a smiley face ☺
Here are some others…

☺ 1
☻ 2
♥ 3
♦ 4
♣ 5
♠ 6
• 7
◘ 8
○ 9
◙ 10
♂ 11
♀ 12
♪ 13
♫ 14
☼ 15
► 16
◄ 17
↕ 18
‼ 19
¶ 20
etc.

You can keep going if you want (22…23…etc.) but I think you get the picture. Here are some ideas on how you can use them in your post…

So there you go…have fun and get creative.  Also not all sites support it, but many do.  Use sparingly, but they can be a nice touch to your post. ☺
