Ideas on how to share on facebook

posted May 9th, 2011
I'm sorry if this has been covered, I have not been on much lately.

My greatest pleasure in this project was sharing the photos with my FB friends--mostly overseas family, none of whom are members of 365. I'm not very motivated to post anything, if they won't see any of the pix...that was sort of the whole point...to keep them updated as to what's up in our lives.

What is the least complicated way to share on FB? or should I just abandon this project and post a picture a day on FB?

Thanks for any thoughts on this.

there is a facebook link, not sure were it is but if you click on it it should allow you to share your 365 on F/B.

you can just copy the day's URL (ie http://365project.org/sdpace/365/2011-05-08 ) and share as a link on FB. It shows the title and a little thumbnail -- works like any other link you might post there.

i share my 365 pix everyday on fb -- on my google toolbar i have a fb icon - i then go to my 365 page with that picture on the page hit the fb icon and viola! i get a fb dialog box i can then share a comment and the pic or just the picture.

What @sdpace said. Copy and paste. As soon as the app disappeared, I started doing this.

Same, I copy/paste the URL thingy in the share box - I tried using the 'like' button but it just randomly selects any picture.

On the bottom right hand corner of the screen under the Weekly theme bit, there is a red 'share' button, then select the facebook button and it does it for you automatically :)

I do both although on Facebook I call my album 'One a day' and I have a separate album for each month.

I have found that the 'share' button sometimes grabs the wrong photo, so I do like others have mentioned and just copy and paste the URL.

I am completely on the opposite side. I don't want to share 365 photos on FB on daily basis because some of my FB friends are from work and I don't want to give them the impression that I go out spending time taking a pic (in my case 3) a day, even if I if it's a 14-hour work day, and the pics are taken at 11pm!!

I thought the same thing when I first started. I was both uploading my photos into a album named 365 project and onto the 365 site. I thought wats the point I should just use fb. But I'm happy I didn't its nice to have people who also appreciate photography to comment on your photos. You will learn so much more with the help and encouragement from your fellow 365ers. Plus its always nice to share with family and friends on fb that arnt on this site. So i think u should keep going with both 8) good luck.

On the right there is a share button, click on the facebook link and you can even copy & paste in your photo description too!
