    Hi guys, please stick with me, facebook and all that is very new to me (and the wife)....

    1) I have the latest ipad facebook app, but, unlike the web version, how do i share a photo from my 'photo' menu onto my 'wall'? just adding a photo from the 'status' or 'photo' options only uploads it, it doesnt post it.


    sure there'll be more to follow, thanks

    You can't 'share' a photo from someone's page via the app, I don't know why.
    The app will upload and publish your own photo though.

    Yes, i can upload a photo via the app, but it doesnt appear on my wall. I need to open the web browser to 'share' it on my wall

    Sorry, can't be any more help then. It works fine on mine, just press photo and choose from library and it should work?

    Hit and miss. I have had it work about a week ago, but no luck since. That option you shows does upload a phot, but only to my photogallery and not my wall.

    How odd. As you see, the picture I uploaded using this method appears on my wall.
    I would be tempted to delete and reinstall the app and see if that helps maybe?

    Done that. No works.

    But, what does work every time is if i use the app's 'check in' option instead. I can post phots on my wall every time with this :)

    next Q.....

    2) in the app, how do i publish or post a photo onto my wall from one of my facebook albums? Cant find the option.
