NOTICE:: This thread is for HTC Sense 2.1 & 2.5 Users who use Facebook hourly/daily.

Well, I know quite a few of the Custom HTC Sense 2.5 ROM users have downloaded & installed the Facebook Tab for Sense [Found Here], and have noticed that, at this moment, it is not possible to update your OWN status with the Tab.

Edit: May 15, 2010: meltwater looks to be on the road to success with the Tab implementing a way to update your status... He hasn't released much information about it YET, but there is a brief explanation and a small Teaser Pic HERE. Looks like we may have a new replacement for the "via HTC Sense".

1.) Slide to your Contacts Tab
2.) Select "All People"
3.) If you haven't already, setup YOUR Contact Card [Named: "Me"]
4.) Be sure to Link your Facebook Profile, if you haven't yet.
5.) Once you have done so, go back to your Contact Card.
6.) Scroll ALL the way down to your Facebook Link, and tap it:

7.) Once you Tap it, you'll see the following screen:

8.) This is your "Status Update" screen.
9a.) For WVGA Resolutions, the "Share" button will be visible right there.
9b.) For VGA Resolutions, you'll notice the thin Gray Scroll bar on the FAR Right. Scroll down to see the "Share" button.
10.) Enter your Status Update into the Box, then click Share.
11.) Go to your Facebook Tab in Sense and tap "Update Now".

[BUG FOUND-VGA:: With some ROMs, in the Landscape view of the Status Update page, You may notice a glitch while trying to type.]
**I'm currently looking for a full solution {For Hardware Keyboard Users :: Touch Pro/Fuze, etc..}**

And there you go! Instant Facebook Status Update without the need of any Apps or a mobile browser.

Just for the record, I used the Forum Search function to see if something like this has been posted before, and the results of the search have influenced me to create this thread. Also, I wasn't sure how many people might actually know about this.. so.... yeah..

If this thread helped you, or you simply appreciate the Tutorial, please don't hesitate to say "Thanks!".

Would be nice with an app that simply directly goes to this in sense:

Ithink its to many "klicks" to get to the "uppdate youre facebook status". I get it to 4 klicks and one scroll down Not to smooth imo.

I think Meltwater is planning on Re-Directing the "Your Profile" area of the Tab to this area, but, honestly, I can't speak for him, as I'm not 100% sure on WHAT he'll be doing.

And I understand it's not the easiest way to do it, but hey, it works without the use of of any Apps or a Mobile Browser. It's a good way for a Bare-bone Sense ROM.

Trust me, when Meltwater updates the Tab to do such a thing, I'll be sure to update this thread with the results.

Thanks for the quality post. HTC has a way of hiding these things until they're 100% ready for the 'limelight' so to speak. I'm sure that Sense 3.x will be a lot more friendly on the social side.

Tested this on my Tilt2 with Sergio's 76 rom and it worked. Funny the function was out there but never thought to try it. Thanks for letting us know, now I can bypass the app and use the facebook tab and the contacts.

Yeah, I'm sure if & when they Update HTC Sense, it will rely upon Social Networking...

And not a problem m8. Bypassing the use of the Web & the App does save a bit of time. :P
