How Facebook Just Got Better...

It's official... America's number one Social Networking site just got even more Facebook-Friendly.  Taking a little bit away from Twitter, facebook now allows you to follow someone closer than ever before using SMS Text Messages simply by subscribing to a friend's profile.

For instance, for me, it's been tough keeping up with my brother in China because he's updating his status and submitting pictures at crazy times of the day.  Now, by subscribing to his profile, it will send me a text message every time he updates his status.  Facebook gives you the ability to select only the updates you want, from the people you want and even let you choose when you would like to get them.  I set mine upto receive text updates from 8am to 11pm.  When you click on the subscribe icon under a person's profile, it will give you a message that says:

Using your mobile phone, send a text message with the letter to "f" to 32665 (FBOOK).*
*Facebook does not charge for this service. Standard messaging rates apply.

Once you follow the instructions listed, it will send you a text with a 5 digit confirmation code that you will then enter into the specified location.  It's easier than ever to stay connected thanks to facebook.
