Facebook’s app can SMS, start phone calls. If your friends list their phone numbers on their account (you will see a phone icon next to their name), you can tap their name in the Friends area and choose to create an SMS to their mobile number or start a phone call. A third “land” button will appear if they list a number as “home” or “work.”
