Facebook Post Box Clone in HTML CSS & JavaScript

Hey friends, today in this blog, you’ll learn how to create a Facebook Post Box in HTML CSS & JavaScript. In the earlier blog, I have shared how to Build A Currency Converter App in JavaScript. Now it’s time to create a Facebook Post Box and its drop-menu animation.

I believe you have seen the Facebook Post Box and its drop or options menu animation. You may be amazed by its cool, interactive, and attractive animation. I also liked its menu animation indeed, and today you’ll also learn how to create this one.


In this project (Facebook Post Box Clone), as you have seen in the preview image, there is a post box like Facebook. When you clicked on the privacy option then there is shown the privacy options for the post with a sliding animation like Facebook. If you didn’t understand what I’m saying then you can watch a demo or full video tutorial of it.

Video Tutorial of Facebook Post Box Clone

 
In the video, you have seen the demo of Facebook Post Box Clone and how I created it in HTML CSS & JavaScript. The animation when you clicked on the privacy option was the same as Facebook isn’t it?

So, if you’re a beginner and don’t know JavaScript then you can also create this type of drop menu animation and be able to use it on other projects.
