FB Status examples that spread joy

Are you interested in learning how to use your FB status?

This post is about how to make people happy with your Facebook post status.

Facebook can be a source of frustration. For instance, bloggers, attempting to use Facebook to promote, get flagged as spammers and land in Facebook Jail.

This post is about how to find joy with Facebook despite the disadvantages of using the site.

December 2020 Update: Even though Facebook’s algorithms favor Facebook groups over the Facebook newsfeed, these Facebook users chose to update their FB status to help others by sharing their newest Facebook status, uplifting quotes.

November 2020 Update: For instance, in November 2020, people used their FB status to rejoice over Joe Biden’s election as President of the United States when Vice President Biden was declared President-Elect Biden.

My daughter asked me an interesting question the other day.

Am I addressing the Coronavirus on my blog?

We talked about how to travel during the Coronavirus.

We held a blog party in which we offered positivity.

We told people, “You matter,” during the holidays.

We reminded people that happiness still exists by reviewing our great vibes quotes.

Is it enough? I think not.

You will often find uplifting Instagram quotes. However, not everyone uses Instagram. Many people who could use uplifting during this difficult time of shelter in place during the Coronavirus use Facebook.

This post is about how to use your FB status to help spread positive thoughts.

I asked content creators to share how they use their FB status to spread uplifting thoughts.

Are you ready to hear how each one uses the Facebook post status update to bring people happiness?

Let’s dive in and learn how to use our FB status to spread cheer.

UPDATE: May 2022

This post recommends you put good vibes quotes in your FB status to cheer up your Facebook friends. This video explains where to find the good vibes quotes and how to make the good vibes quotes.

What is a Facebook Status?

There are many advantages to using Facebook. For example, Facebook users use their FB status to share what is new or ongoing in their lives.

A Facebook status is usually short and enables Facebook users to share updated information with their Facebook friends.

This is an advantage of social media sites: They enable you to stay in touch with people you don’t see regularly. This is especially important during the Coronavirus while people shelter in place in their homes and can’t see each other in person.

Many Facebook users have used their FB status to share sentiments on the Coronavirus.

Although the Coronavirus is a terrifying pandemic, many people use their FB status to share positivity and Facebook question statuses.

“Facebook Status” has another meaning as well. When people want to know if Facebook is down or working, they inquire about the Facebook status, in other words, the status of Facebook.

Facebook Not Loading

If Facebook is not loading, you need to know if the problem is on your end or if Facebook is down.

What you need is a down detector. A Facebook down detector tells you if Facebook isn’t working.

Here you will find a Facebook down detector that answers the question, “Is Facebook down?”

You need to know the Facebook status of whether Facebook is working before you can proceed posting a new FB status on your wall.

Facebook for Business Status

Another tool exists to help you know if Facebook for Business Status is down or operational.

This tool tells you if there are any problems with Facebook Ad Manager tools.

Love Status for Facebook

If you want to make people happy with your FB status, consider using love quotes.

A love quotation for Facebook is an awesome Facebook status everyone will like.

Where can you find the content for your love post for Facebook?

As your source for quotes to put in your Facebook status that will get likes, I recommend the following resources:

  • Brainy Quotes
  • Instagram
  • Goodreads

When searching on Instagram, make sure you use hashtags like #LoveQuotes to find your love quotation for Facebook.

Cute Facebook Statuses

If you want to bring joy to your Facebook audience, try wowing them with cute Facebook statuses. Be sure to include an image to show people what you consider “cute.”

Think of the appeal of short popular videos on TikTok for inspiration. Some of my favorites are watching puppies.

People love seeing images of puppies and young children.

If you are looking for the “cute” factor, these cute ideas.

Free tools help you place the images along with your cute Facebook statuses.

This post generator offers free tools you can use to place images on Facebook.

Facebook Question Statuses

February 2021 Update

Many Facebook users put questions as their FB status. I know this first-hand since I see them regularly.

Examples of Facebook Question Statuses:

“How did we meet in one word?

You could have funny questions, questions for friends to answer, and you can even play 21 Questions in your FB Status.

The game 21 questions entails people trying to guess by asking only Yes or No questions. A friend of mine played 21 questions in his Facebook status where we had to guess the movie he was thinking of.

FB Status Excerpts with Positive Attitude

During the Coronavirus pandemic, Facebook users Sheltering-in-Place shared these as their FB Status:

1. “There’s been getting back to basics, comfy sweats, amping up technology, strength, leaning on friends, reuniting, praying, positive vibes and so much love.

Trying to take it one day at a time. I’ve set the bar low—as long as everyone is alive, then I’m winning.”

I am journaling for a possible book: Kicking Butt While Conquering The Two Big C’s, ASD and a Dup.

2. “One day, in the not so distant future, there will be a day when we all walk outside together.

When we’re heading to meet our friends and, on the way, we smile at the old man at the bakery and wave to the neighbor’s kids playing in the street and then we find our friends and hug and clink our bottles together at this reunion for which we have waited for so long and talk and talk into the night.

That day is not here yet. But soon. And imagine how that day will feel.”

3.  “Not all heroes wear capes. But I’m excited for the next Marvel movie about the superhero in scrubs.”  

4. “We can save the human race by lying in front of the TV and doing nothing. Don’t mess it up now, you’ve been practicing your whole life for this.”

Although it wasn’t part of her FB Status, Anna added, “Who would have thought all those hours in front of Netflix could have prepared us so well to save humanity?”

I’ve always regularly posted links to positive updates on all my social media: positive quotes, captioned photographs I’ve taken, I’ve created crossword puzzles, and have asked people to share their happy thoughts (Thankful Thursday), also have included links to events, videos, and articles.

18. “Have a rough day?

Place your hand on your heart.

Feel that. That’s called purpose.

You’re alive for a reason.

Don’t give up.

19.Once a man was asked: “What did you gain by regularly praying to God?”

The man replied, ‘nothing… but let me tell you what I lost: anger, ego, greed, depression, insecurity, and fear of death.’ Sometimes the answer to our prayers is not gaining, but losing; which is ultimately the gain.” 

20. “When they announce we are safe from COVID: I will never forget the little things in life I take for granted: like church, coffee with a friend, and hugs from friends and family.


Gail Trauco https://www.frontporchtherapy.com/

21. “Inspired by Heather Gerker (and the fact that I put out a podcast episode a few weeks back about how we need to get rid of the idea of the guilty pleasure, go look up episode 3 of the Choose Your Struggle podcast to hear it)…

Here’s my list of 10 things I love even though society tells me they’re not for me or liking them is silly. Fuck you society! I like what I like.

1: The pops styling of Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, Kesha, and the like….
2: Getting super deep into Star Wars (novels and kids cartoons included!)
3: Pokemon Go
4: The Elder Scrolls Video Game Series (Skyrim, Oblivion etc.)
5: True Crime (Podcasts, books etc.)!
6: Collecting tchotchkes (Funkos, Action Figures etc.)
7: Trading cards and Through the Mail Autograph Requests
8: Fishing
9: Talking about Mental Health and Addiction!
10: Eating raw onions.

I could go on. But basically, embrace what makes you happy and fuck what other people think. Don’t let them jack your happiness!

Spread Love and Choose Your Struggle!”

January 2021 Update 1

Although the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election is over, many Facebook users put political opinions in their newest Facebook status.

This often leads to heated discussion resulting in Facebook users landing in Facebook jail.

Make sure whatever you put in your new Facebook status won’t be viewed as inflammatory. Err on the side of caution. If in doubt, don’t put it in your Facebook status. A long ban won’t be worth the Facebook status update.

January 2021 Update 2

Here are inspirational quotes for your newest Facebook status.

Blogger Hazlo Emma posted business quotes that would be perfect to motivated entrepreneurial minded thinkers. You will find good vibes quotes for business people here.

January 2021 Update 3

The week of January 17, 2021 people were unable to post to their Facebook wall to update their FB status.

Even days after the glitch occurred, Facebook users were unable to get back in to their accounts to update their FB status.

Since I didn’t personally experience being locked out of my account, I am hearing about this second-hand.

Facebook users reported the frustration in the Facebook Reddit subreddit. Redditors reported scams were being perpetrated since scammers offered to get Facebook users’ accounts back in exchange for their login information.

October 2020

Social media users don’t just use their FB status to boost morale. In fact, Tumblr followers use Tumblr as well as more mainstream sites like Instagram to inspire.

For instance, a law student devoted her Tumblr account to sharing inspiration about late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
