Introduction

If you have a photo stored on your iPhone or iPad you just can't wait to connect to a computer and upload to Facebook through the desktop version of the Web site, you can upload the photo through the Facebook app for your device. Uploading photos through the device requires that you actually post the photo as an update in your profile. After the photo is uploaded, it can then be accessed on any device you can access Facebook in the Mobile Uploads album in the Photos section.
