Add Photos to Your Facebook Profile Via E-Mail

IF YOU’RE A Facebook addict and you’re eager to tell your pals about your adventures, you don’t have to wait until you get back to your PC—Facebook off ers a number of features that cater to mobile users. For starters, you can update your status via text message. And if your phone has a camera, you can do even more: Facebook lets you add photos and videos to your profi le via e-mail. You don’t have to use a phone to perform this procedure. You can just as well e-mail your content to Facebook from a PC if you find that easier than using Facebook proper (or if you happen to be using a work PC that blocks social networks). Here’s how to get going with Facebook via e-mail.

1. Head to www.facebook.com/mobile. (You’ll need to sign in to your account if you haven’t done so already.)

2. Look under ‘Upload Photos via Email’ for your person al e-mail address. (Mine is a bizarre string of random words and numbers.)

3. Add that upload address to your contact list, or click Send my upload email to me now to have Facebook shoot it to wherever you routinely check your mail. (It’s not much of a time-saver, but it might be easier than your typing the address into your phone.)

4. Compose a new e-mail message with the photo or video attached. Direct the missive to your Facebook upload address, and use the subject line for the caption you want to show. Click Send, and presto! The photo or video goes straight to your Facebook profile. By default, the site makes such uploads public, so be sure to go to Facebook’s settings if you want to change that.
