If you have iPhone or BlackBerry, you’re used to being able to get photos and videos from your phone to Facebook fairly easily through the applications the social network has launched for each mobile platform that integrate nicely with your device’s camera.
But now, Facebook is launching a more universal way for you to get your multimedia onto the site: email. Much like TwitPic and other mobile uploading applications for Twitter, the new Facebook mobile feature assigns you a personal email address (you can find yours here) that you can email your photos to. Doing so automatically posts them to your account, using your subject line as the caption.
Other details of the feature, as explained by Facebook on their blog:
‘If you’re uploading more than one photo or video in the email, the captions will be the same for all of them. You can always edit the captions later by logging into your Facebook account.
You can send as many photos or videos as you want in a single email, within the file size limits of your email provider. After you send an email, the time it takes for an upload to be completed will vary depending on how long it takes for your email to reach us.’
