UPDATE – you CAN now post photos from your mobile into albums using the Facebook Pages app- Hurray!!
This came up whilst we were talking at Croydon’s Meanwhile Use marketing day. I explained that posting photos is great and to do it from your mobile is easy and can create buzz for projects, but to remember to go and upload them into albums on your Page later with dates, descriptions, tags etc and then you can link to those albums and share them etc. Otherwise they all just sit in ‘mobile uploads’ and that’s a massive mess!
However, I don’t think a lot of people know that, for your personal profile, you can actually add to an Album or even Create an Album on your phone.
After selecting ‘Share a Photo’ on your timeline and selecting them, click the icon underneath (below!) and you can add to an Album or create a new Album.
Choose an album
Alternatively, on the iPhone Facebook App, from anywhere just go to ‘More’ then scroll down until you see ‘Photos’ and in there you can upload like you do from your PC.
Both give you the options to add a description, location, people-tagging and privacy alterations as normal.
The only thing we’ve noticed you can’t do is Edit the Album to do things like re-order the photos like you can from your PC.
So, there’s no need to re-upload to organise your photos into Albums. Unfortunately, this doesn’t seem to be available for Pages Apps yet, but for personal use it’s great.
