In one of our previous post, we mentioned a trick using which one could receive unlimited free Orkut scrap alerts via SMS though Orkut does not officially support this! 😉 Now, in this post, I will let you know, how you can subscribe to receive your Facebook wall posts, messages or alerts on mobile via SMS instantly as and when they are updated.
Unlike Orkut, Facebook provides unlimited free SMS notifications for all your wall posts, messages and also for the wall posts of your friends that you select!
Steps For Activating Free SMS Alerts on Facebook:
- Login to your Facebook account and go to settings->mobile or directly follow this link
- Click on “add mobile number” option, punch in your mobile number there and you’ll instantly receive a verification code on your mobile that you will have to put on the given form to verify that you are the actual owner of the mobile number provided
- You are done, now set the time between which you would like to receive text messages from this page
- Also, as seen on the screenshot, set what type of messages or wall posts you would like to receive as SMS from “settings->Notifications” area or follow this direct link to open notifications page
Verdict on Facebook Free SMS Service:
Just like Twitter, Facebook is one the most trending and popular social networking site and getting such a nice advantage of free SMS alerts is an add-on for Facebook fans. All I can say is they must utilize this free service without any second thoughts! 😉
