  1. I just updated my Facebook status via your mom's computer without even breaking into her house. All I had to do is use a little trick which lets me pretend to be posting Facebook updates from nearly anywhere or anything — including Hogwarts, the Moon, a toaster, or a typewriter.
  2. The trick appears to have been discovered by leftoverusername, a commenter on popular link-sharing site Reddit, and it's quite simple. Just modify a special URL when posting an update and the "via" text on the status is altered accordingly.
  3. For example, if I want to pretend that I'm posting a status update from the Moon, I start with the special URL:
  4.  http://www.facebook.com/connect/prompt_feed.php?preview=true&api_key=123456789
  5. Then I change the "123456789" API key designation to "221826277855257," the one which corresponds with "The Moon." This means that my final URL looks like this:
  6.  http://www.facebook.com/connect/prompt_feed.php?preview=true&api_key=221826277855257
  7. I head to that link — and tada! — I can enter a status update that appears to be coming from the Moon:
  8.  
  9. Facebook
  10. If I want to use this trick to post an update on a friend's Facebook Wall, I simply use the same special URL, but add and alter a "target" ID designation to match my pal's friend ID number:
  11. http://www.facebook.com/connect/prompt_feed.php?preview=true&display=touch&api_key=123456789&target_id=123456789
  12. (Note that a person's friend ID number can usually be found at the end of his or her Facebook URL or hidden within a link on his or her page.)
  13. "But Rosa," someone is whining right now. "The Moon is so boring! I want to update my status from some cooler place!" Well, guess what? You can.
  14. Thanks to leftoverusername and other crafty Reddit commenters, there is a long list of numbers which you can plug into the API key spot to make your Facebook status updates more fun:
