Default Posting Pictures to Facebook Fan Pages

For the sake of simplicity, the pages on facebook that you "Like", I will refer to them as 'fan pages' (old name).

I am admin of a fan page (which doesn't matter since everyone can post photos/videos). How can I upload photos from my phone to this page? The phone's 'Touch' page and 'Mobile' page will only allow me to upload to my profile, but that's not what I want. When I go to the fan page using the 'Touch' or 'Mobile' page, it never gives me option to upload photos, only to view them. I tried using the normal 'Full' facebook page on my phone but it just says "Upload Disabled" because I'm not on a PC.

Can someone explain how I can upload a photo to a fan page? This was one of the bigger reasons I got this phone.

I used to have a "Photo Scavenger Hunt" facebook group (in fact, it's still there but I don't think anyone is in to it anymore) and we wanted to be able to do that. The best fix we found, which isn't a great fix at all, is to upload the pic to your own profile, and then share it to the group page wall.

It's a crappy way of doing things, but I searched and searched and searched and found nothing better.

I don't understand how to "Share" it. Lets take, for example, a picture I have already in an album on my profile. I click "Share" but (even on a PC) my only option is to just post it to my own wall.

The only way I've found is to upload your pictures via e-mail.

Click "Edit Page" on your fan page. Now find where it says "mobile" and click "edit". There should be an e-mail address listed here - mine is glaze780*****@m.facebook.com. You can send your photo or video as an attachment to that e-mail address (put captions in the subject line), and it will post it to your fan page wall.

Hope that helps!

Smile Facebook Fan Pages

Hi guys nice to meet you all. Its good to be a part of this forum. Your topic about Facebook holds my interest. With the fact that Facebook can really affect our society today, I can say that it is the best tool to communicate and can even use for business purposes. One of the most interesting features of Facebook to facilitate the needs of business owners to drive insane traffic to their site is thru the use of Facebook Fan Page. A fan page is recognized by many as a great tool to further expand your social network, interact with your clients and customers and promote your company. Coupled with the fact that Facebook fan pages are accessible even by those that are not already registered on Facebook, can advance your potential for exposure. What do you think of making your business go viral with this Facebook stuff?

I built an app that you can use to post (including photos), comment and "like" items on any of your pages as the page itself.

Here is the link:

thank you n8n_t! your app is unique, option to upload photos to specific folders would make it untouchable.

Thumbs up Posting pics to Fan Pages

I just tried this on my Photon, and it seemed to work just fine if you have the Facebook for Android app installed on your phone:
  • Open the Facebook app.
  • Click on your "Search" button (or press "Back" once and then hit the Search button in the upper right corner of the FB app).
  • When search opens up, click "Pages" on the bottom, in the middle.
  • Your pages should come up first on the list.
  • When you click on the page you're looking to upload to, it brings up the profile.
  • From there, you can click on the camera icon and upload a picture to the Fan Pages wall, as the page.
  • This doesn't allow you to choose a folder or album to upload to, but it will post it to "Wall Photos" as the page (not as your individual account).

That should be it, unless I'm missing something or this discussion is old because people figured it out...
