The above screenshot was taken straight from my Facebook Wall; look closely at the end of the status update. If you are currently using Celcom Facebook SMS to send updates via SMS to your Facebook account, I’m sure you will notice something new there (shown in bold); [via Celcom SMS @ Bandar Kinrara 5 vicinity]

Yes, that is how your future Facebook status updates will look like once Celcom has fully integrates their existing Facebook SMS mobile service with LBS (Location-Based Information Service). To those worried about their privacy being compromised by the new LBS service, here’s the good news. I was told that Celcom will one day give users the option to either add or remove the new LBS service from their subscriptions.

I don’t know when exactly Celcom will roll out the new LBS service to their existing Facebook SMS subscribers but if you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment or two and I will forward your queries to the team that has developed the mobile service you are using right now (assuming that you’re a Celcom Facebook SMS subscriber) as soon as possible.
