    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

    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.
