How to Put a Picture on Facebook From Your Phone

One effective way to share pictures taken on your cellphone with family, friends and contacts is to upload them to the Facebook social networking site. Facebook offers a photo upload facility to smartphone users who install the Facebook Mobile application, but standard cellphone users can also upload pictures to Facebook. You can register for a dedicated Facebook upload email address that allows you to upload pictures direct from your phone handset.
