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.

Step 2

Click on your friend's name. This will bring up that person's wall.

Step 3

Click on the "Message" button on your friend's wall. Facebook allows users to send private messages to other members that can be viewed through the website.

Step 4

Write a message to your friend about the photo. You may also leave the message box blank.

Step 5

Click on the "paperclip" icon below your message. Select a photo from your computer and attach it as a file to send to your friend.

Step 6

Click on "Send" to send your photo to just this one friend.
