Chime, the service which lets you update your Twitter status via an Australian SMS number, has extended its options so you can also update your Facebook status.

Link your Facebook account to Chime via Facebook Connect and you can send updates directly to Facebook from any SMS-capable phone. If you’ve signed up for both Facebook and Twitter, the update will go to both sites; you can precede it with ‘tw’ or ‘fb’ to restrict it. Adding Facebook might not matter if (like me) you already send Twitter updates to Facebook by default, but if your online life is more nuanced, it’s a useful addition.
