I have a facebook page and I am trying to figure out how to embed hyperlinks and anchor text into my posts.

I came upon this article, but the problem is I dont see the toolbar they reference. Where is it?

Can you try the same instructions using another browser, like Chrome or Firefox?

Hi Mark,
 Like this
Facebook_tiny URL
Using your Link guide I logged into my Facebook on IE nothing that looks like a Blog Chain link.
Same with Chrome.
I believe your link relates to a Facebook Fan page.
So I went this way instead Mark, for a personal Face Book, and again there must be different types of Face Book, because I found this  Notes under my timeline next to Friends>,
  click on the arrow next to"MORE"
then click on "Note" then click add a "note" follow his guide to add the html codes and  <> and other stuff then preview it below and publish.
Once I accessed this and closed it the add note is visible below my timeline picture.
try it out using this guide

Let me see if I understand:

This will not work with a fb fan page but will work with a fb personal page?

On the contrary Mark it should work in both,
 the reference you linked was from Facebook  page..however they were in an Admin Panel, an Admin Panel is where you give administrative rights to members to edit and modify your Facebook page.
 the personal  Facebook which is what I/we have right?  ( no admins) will also work I just had to look for the notes as the reference material didn't match anywhere.
This an example of the Admin Panel

Okay so you now understand when you go to your Facebook open your name so you are in your timeline, you understand how to open the Notes, use the above screenshot then click add note
add a noteNew notein this draft  Put a Title name
then in the body
type your words and then select a section where to add this code
I'll highlight the Link Text in black to illustrate
<a href=”url“>Link text</a>
Example :  <a href=”http://www.Mark,com/”>see more</a>
write your own url instead of & write your Anchor text link what you want reading continue/see more/ etc or what you want , instead of see more
preview it and then publish it, if you don't like it click on discard at the bottom.
This is the guide I have used.
