How to Update Facebook status by Text Message

Update Facebook Status via Text Message

Did you ever get this type of status on your Facebook profile i.e Now you can text your status to FBOOK (32665) to update your status on the go. And you ignored it just as a normal feature update from Facebook. Then you made a big mistake, using this feature you have the ability to update status messages by sending a text message through  your cellphone or Smartphone.


When we don’t have this text message feature, if you wanted to update your status on Facebook, users would have to log into the mobile version of Facebook and then type the message but now you can make this happen just by sending one SMS sounds really cool to me. And guess what when I tried to test it out, I realized that I never activated Facebook mobile and expected this from other users.
