How to Upload Selfies & Photos to FaceBook
from Your Phone
There are three ways to send photos from your phone
1. FaceBook app - On a smartphone (Blackberry, iPhone, Windows Mobile), visit m.facebook.com and download the app for your device. These apps are designed to integrate with your phone and provide the option to send photos to your FaceBook account as soon as you take a picture.
2. FaceBook MMS - Create an MMS message and attach the picture file to the message. Send the message to firstname.lastname@example.org (via email, not phone). You will receive a test message with a confirmation code from FaceBook. Use the code to confirm, and the photo will be posted. Keep in mind, depending on your data plan, this option could get costly.
3. FaceBook Email - If your phone can send emails, go to facebook.com/mobile for your special FaceBook email address. Any photo or video sent to this address will automatically be posted on your FaceBook page. Whatever you put in the subject line of the email will be used as the caption for the photo or video.
