You can add your mobile device to your Page for Status Updates by texting “f” to 32665 (FBOOK). After the Page is linked with your mobile number, send a text to 32665 (FBOOK) to post an Update to your Wall.

If you associate a mobile number to your Page, that number cannot be associated to your profile or another Page.

You can read the guide online or download it in PDF format from here.

[*] Don’t create a Facebook page for your favorite sports star or another website that you are a fan of since own only “official representatives” can create pages. You can however create a Facebook group instead of a page.

[**] The guide was published by Facebook very recently but surprisingly, it doesn’t mention any of the Facebook plugins that were launched at F8 last month.
