Update your Facebook status via SMS… nice.

I was surprised to find out recently that a lot of people still don’t know that they can update their Facebook status via text message (i.e. SMS). This is actually pretty easy and its a great way to make sure that everyone is spying on you all the time :)

All you have to do is send a text message to FBOOK (32665) and make sure that your text message starts with an “@” character

So, for example, If I wanted to update my status to “Aydin is blogging now”, all I’d have to do is send the following text message to facebook (32665):

“@ blogging now”.

btw, you can tell if someone updated their facebook status from their cell phone if you see a small mobile phone icon right next to their status update…

Use it!

    you may have to install the facebook mobile application and activate on facebook before you can use this functionality…

    hope this helps,

    Great find! I’m going to have to start testing this out. What a cool way to keep folks up to date with what you are doing.

    Thanks for the info. It got me started in the right direction!

    You have to go to facebook.com/mobile to get a confirmation code sent to your phone. After you put the confirmation code in the appropriate field on facebook.com/mobile, you can start updating (and other stuff) using text messages.
