May be some of your friends used to update status & photos with their smart devices like iPhone, iOS, Blackberry, Sony etc., and you may find device name in their status or photo album. It looks attractive and adds a great value to the content but not all of us have enough money to buy those costly phones.

How To Post Facebook Status And Photo via any fake device

Interesting thing is, now we can post on Facebook with fake device name i.e., without having device, we can post status in name of it. In today's tutorial I will guide you how to do this. Apart from devices name you can also post with any text you want. The logic behind this is very simple, we will first create app with the same name as we want our device and after that using it's ID, we will post our status. In next part of this tutorial I will tell you ,"how to post image with that same fake device". So let's begin -

2. Now In the top navigation menu, hover to "My Apps". You will see "add a new app" option. Click it and you will be redirected to next page.
