How to Send a Picture to Facebook Via Mobile

Facebook offers several ways for users to network with friends and share media, such as photos and videos. Facebook's latest mobile access feature showcases a condensed version of the browser for proper viewing on cell phones. With the implementation of this new feature, pictures can also be sent directly from the phone onto Facebook. Sending pictures to Facebook, via mobile phone, is commonly known as photo uploading. The uploading process can be instant, assuming you have Facebook mobile activated on your phone.
