When you want to share photos with all of your friends on Facebook, posting it on your wall is a fast and easy way to do it. The photo will then go out as a "Status Update" and will post in Facebook's live feed for all of your friend's to see. If you want to send a picture to just one person, however, there are a few steps to take to ensure it goes to only one friend.


Step 1

Type the person's name in the "Search" box at the top of your Facebook page. A drop down menu will appear with your friend's name.
