Facebook is easily one of the most popular places to share photos and videos with friends and family. Now the folks at Facebook have streamlined the process, allowing you to upload media directly to your account via a personalised email address.
It works like this: Just log in and head to the Facebook Mobile page, then look for the custom email address under the Upload Photos via Email section. Copy the address, add it to your contacts, and next time you want to upload something to Facebook, just compose and email to your custom address and attach the files in question. Similarly, if someone sends you photos you want to upload to Facebook, you can simply forward the email and attachments to your custom Facebook address.
If the notion sounds familiar, it’s probably because Flickr has offered its own upload by email option for quite some time now—as have many other sites.
As relative photo purists, we cringe to think that some people rely exclusively on Facebook to host their photos, since it generally compresses the hell out of them, but even still, it’s a useful feature.
