How does Facebook texting work?

Facebook Text Messages lets you use Facebook through text messaging on your phone. You can post to a friends wall, poke them, send them a message and the best part is that it allows visitors to send you a message directly to your cellphone from your facebook profile page.

You have to first add your cell phone number to Facebook>Account>Account Setting>Mobile.

You'll receive a confirmation code after that.

Once your phone is added you can text your status to 32665. visit https://www.facebook.com/mobile/?texts=1 to learn how to use the different functions for Facebook Mobile Texts on your mobile phone.
