A pop-up will appear, prompting you to pick your country and your mobile phone carrier. Then Facebook will invite you to text the letter “F” to a short phone number using your phone. Just send the text as instructed, and Facebook will text you back a confirmation code which you’ve already been prompted to enter at the website. This field is accompanied by two options that customize how text messaging interacts with your profile.
Facebook will make you sign back in as your personal profile, then it will give you a list of commands you can text to the number to change settings. But don’t be fooled — right now, text messages affect your Page, not your profile. Just text the contents of a status update (i.e., “This is a status update. Hi.”) to the given number and it will appear on your Page.
