Richard Smith alerted me to the fact that Facebook mobile is now available for Canadian cell phone users. And holy cow! did they ever do a smart job setting it up. You can customize what kinds of messages you get (friend requests vs pokes vs wall posts etc), how many messages a day (to cap messaging costs), turn off messages when you’re logged into the website (smart!), send status updates from your phone, lookup numbers in profiles…on and on. I think I have to clear my schedule for the next 3 days while I figure out all the crazy ways to use this for fun and social agitation.
This is definitely the use case for paying fido $10/mo to cover the cost of 1,000 msgs.
