If you are one of those people that cannot live without Facebook then chances are high that you would also be willing to use it on your mobile phone. Well, the mobile SMS notification system of Facebook is certainly not new but it is really helpful to keep in touch with your friends and online social activities. It is always a good idea to receive a SMS notification when someone sends you a message on Facebook, when someone comments on your post, or when someone mentions you in their comments. Not only you can receive text notification from Facebook but Twitter is also offering same features. However, we are going to get into details operation of how to get your Facebook Mobile SMS system working.
However, before I go ahead and share tutorial that I have prepared for you guys, let me discuss some of the common reason for which you or anyone may want to activate their SMS notifications for Facebook. The biggest reasons why a person would want to activate Facebook SMS notification is because they want to stay connected with their friends at online social media network. Of course, Facebook is the most famous social network since last many years and it seems that no other network has the potential to drop it from its place right now. If you are a social freak like me then you must add your mobile number in your Facebook profile so you can receive information about latest development on your mobile screen with the help of SMS messages.
Below is the tutorial that I have prepared for you. Please follow the steps properly to activate your Facebook SMS notifications.
1. Log-in to you profile and go to your Timeline. On right top corner, you will find a small arrow, click on it and a drop down menu will appear. Select “Account Settings” from that drop down menu and a new window will appear in front of you.
2. On left side of the screen, you will find different options. Click on “Mobile” in the left side bar and it will show you different options about using your Mobile phone with your Facebook account.
3. Click on “Add a Phone” and a new window will appear. Here you will be required to follow two steps. In first step, you will have to select your Country and also the mobile carrier you are using.
4. Facebook will require you to send a message at their given number and in reply, they will send you a confirmation code. Once you will place that confirmation code in the box provided in the screen, your phone will be activated for Facebook Mobile. Screenshot below explains everything.
It is up to you if you want to share your phone number with your friends or not. You can also select the option to let your friend’s text you directly from Facebook.
After receiving a confirmation message about activation, you will be required to click on Next and it will take you to a new window. In that window, you can change some other settings about your Facebook Mobile.
