How to Share Photos on Facebook

By Edited Nov 13, 2013 0 0

With the ever-increasing worldwide popularity of the Facebook website platform, many online users have become really quite welcoming to the many cool things it allows them to do. Inherent to Facebook's plethora of functionionality is the ability for one to share photos of themselves, if they so desire. In fact, with thousands upon thousands of new pictures uploaded daily, Facebook users are increasingly using this function to essentially establish lifelong online photo albums of themselves that can be seen by both themselves, as well as their friends and family. 

Whether you'd like to share pictures from your grandmother's 89th Birthday, or your own wild bachlorette party, Facebook can be a great place to do that. Bear in mind, as a word of caution, anything you upload to Facebook (or any website for that matter) is subject to the public domain, and the original uploader of that content (you) can and will be held responsible for any questionable content. Documented cases have recently emerged where college students, who were clearly underage, took harmless pictures of themselves drinking at parties. Under the supposed veil of security, these pictures were (and will be) visible to college officials just as much as they will be visible to your friends and family. Proceed with caution. A seemingly innocent picture, uploaded to Facebook today, could very well get you kicked out of college or fired from a job.

Things You Will Need

a Facebook Account
a Computer

Step 1

When handling and uploaded pictures to your Facebook account, there are essentially two main ways how to do it. Through your Facebook profile, you can either actually click on your Facebook profile image, or you can access photos of yourself by clicking on the link entitled "View Photos of Me" which is located directly underneath your actually Facebook profile image. When you click the link "View Photos of Me", these aren't necessarily pictures that you have hosted and uploaded on your own. Instead, these are an aggregation of photos, site wide, that have you in them. This means that they could have been uploaded by you, your friends, or a family member. The way Facebook actually knows that you are in one of your friends photos is through a process otherwise known as "tagging". The interesting thing about tagging is that anyone can do it, and they don't have to necessarily accurately "tag" you as the person you really are or should be. Essentially, you could be tagged as dolphin, or a car, or any other material object.
This page will also show you your own personal uploaded photo albums, situated directly below the tagged photos of you Facebook site-wide. Your album pictures are the pictures you have actually uploaded yourself, rather than someone other than yourself.

Step 2

In order to share your selected photo album, on Facebook, you will have to now have to click your "Share this Album" link located directly below your album pictures. By click your "Share this Album" link, you will be given options with regards to how exactly you would prefer to share your album of photos.

Step 3

When you choose to "Share This Album", you will be given two options with regards to how you actually want to share it. On the one hand, you could begin by typing the name of the person(s) who you would like to share it with. This will allow you to send a message, that lands directly in your desired recipient's Facebook inbox. Doing this can be a great way to get the attention of a family member or friend who may not exactly see what you have posted to your profile (or newsfeed). Because a newsfeed can easily become saturated, if you so prefer to share your Facebook photos via the newsfeed, you should be aware that, depending on how many friends your friends have, they may never even seen your pictures at all. When you post your Facebook album, you do need to realize that you do stand a much better chance of your album being seen, by who it intended to be seen by, if you take the necessary time to actually manual insert names and message your friends and family.

Step 4

Once you have either emailed, or posted your Facebook photo album to your profile/newsfeed, you can now await any feedback or comments that your friends and family may leave on each photo. Depending on what you decide to post, and the material you are posting, photo comments could range from very humorous and welcomed to very hurtful and unwelcomed. Operating online means that you also have to develop a bit of a thick skin quickly. You should learn to not take what others say to heart, and if they leave you nasty comments, on your Facebook photos, then you really have to ask yourself if they are true friends to begin with. If you are receiving hurtful comments, or are being harrassed, you should strongly consider that you learn how to block people on Facebook.
Sharing your photos (and photo albums) on Facebook can be a great way to keep your friends and family updated about things you have done in your life that you hold significant. Whether you are returning from your honeymoon to Jamaica, or have toured Europe, those in your inner circle of influence will be more than likely excited to see (and hear) about your latest excursions. Sharing your photos on Facebook can be a really great way to do this.

Tips & Warnings

As mentioned in my introduction to this article, a Facebook user should be extremely cautious when uploading pictures (or any content online). Although there are privacy settings one can apply to their photos albums, unfortunately, more oftentimes than not, people tend to forget to take the extra step necessary to ensuring that their photos aren't visible by the people they would not prefer them to be seen by. You Facebook photo "Album Privacy" link is located directly above your actual album cover photos.
My personal Facebook experience has generally been a great experience. Unfortunately, I do not really use the photo uploading/sharing function nearly as often as I probably could or should. Even still, you can learn from these tips and make Facebook a great place for you to hang out and share information (with those who you want to see that information).
