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.
Meltwater has been searching for a solution for the Facebook Tab, but until a solution is found, I thought I’d share a way to update YOUR Status WITHOUT the use of the Microsoft Facebook App or viewing the Mobile Facebook site in a mobile browser.
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.

6.) Scroll ALL the way down to your Facebook Link, and tap it.
