    Default Large fonts in Facebook

    Today I posted something in Facebook and the font increased a lot. I carried on, because I had experienced this before.
    Nevertheless, despite my post having many more alphanumericals, the font size stayed the same. That was a bit disconcerting
    but I could live with it. HOWEVER, then I wanted to add a pic. Oops, no, that is Verboten(I did read my WW2 comics well!!).
    As we all would do, I Googled and you cannot reduce the size of the font - Verboten!! Am stuck in limbo

    Are you starting a new post or adding to an existing thread ??

    Just tried it, at first the fonts were large ( in picture below what's on your mind) BUT clicked on add a picture ( Arrow pointing) and when posting the Large font reduced down to normal.

    Click image for larger version.

    Are you using the New Layout or Classic Version ?

    Hi wainui, it is a new post. The larger font is supposed to change down to the regular size as soon as there are more than 35 characters, which mine most definitely is. Additionally, it is supposed to go down to regular size, when either, an image is added - or a link. Since I did have a link included there is obviously some glitch in Facebook.

    Have you posted a single line post, if so, try adding Putting many spaces instead of one space at any place in your post..The post then displays in normal - small - font.
    Many spaces display as just one space
