    Oh yes, a lot of people don’t bother to write properly these days. My immediate thought about your post was that you didn’t capitalize the words and make it into a proper heading. The Facebook site is not responsible for the poor writing of those who post there.

    It’s unfortunate that so much bad writing comes out of school these days and is made acceptable by those who read the posts. In chat, we limit the amount of chat-speak that people use. You are excepted to write full sentences and everything, though we do get lax sometimes. However, we had a lot of ‘children’ leave chat after they were told that ‘(smiley face) b4 u ask ? r u writing (smiley face) was not acceptable. LOL

    Nope, sorry, you’re wrong. Hitting Enter posts what you’ve written. I’ve accidentally hit the Enter key many times (aiming for the quote key) and had to edit/delete the post to finish typing.

    If not post but go to the next line you hold down the SHIFT key while hitting ENTER.

    No, it really is a question of settings.

    Actually, I’m not wrong. It depends which version of FB you are running. It works quite well on my version. But apparently only the way you have it can be correct . . . According to you?

    Edit: Just checked it on another persons account and hitting enter breaks the line and does not post it. So it seems it is your version of the FB browser.
