Previewing Facebook Notes

While we're on the topic of Facebook notes, I just wanted to pass along a tip. When creating a note, it's handy to preview it before you post, but that's not always an option (or one that's easy to find) when you're creating a note. Here's what you can do:

  1. Log in to your Facebook account
  2. On the top of the page, beside your profile photo you'll see a series of tabs. If you see Notes as one of the options, click it. If you don't see it as an option, click the + tab at the far right and choose Notes as the tab you'd like to add
  3. Now, if you select the Notes tab and then click the Write a New Note button you'll find a large note editor with Publish, Preview and Save Draft options. This is a good editor to use when adding a Facebook Link Tracker to a note. It'll help you get it right before you decide to make the post visible on the site.
