Facebook enables 'reply via email' to status updates

Blam! Just like that: you can now reply to Facebook status updates via email. Just hit 'reply', type out your response, hit 'send', and voila!

I have no idea if it has just been enabled for the entire Facebook userbase, or if it's steadily rolling out as I speak, but three things are for sure: I'm using it right now; it works seamlessly and it's fast. Please let me know if it's enabled for you or not -- I'll try to keep this post updated with the news.

It's been a long time coming, that's for sure. Might this also mean that we'll soon be able to reply to Facebook mail via our email accounts? I sure hope so. Anything to avoid ads that remind me of my continued bachelorhood.

Update: It's a gradual roll-out, so not everyone will have it enabled yet. It also works for any status 'thread' that you are a participant of, not just your own.
