Step 4 (optional): Tap one of the colorful circles underneath the text to change the post’s background color.

Step 5: Tap “Done” in the top-right corner of the screen when you’re done editing your text and background.

Step 6: At the bottom of the screen, tap either “Your Story” to instantly share the post to your Facebook Story, or “Next” to select how and where you’d like to share the post.
