Facebook API photo uploading

More news from the facebook development camp, this time with respect to photo uploading on Facebook. So what is it all about I hear you cry, well essentially they have added libraries to the API that will allow software developers to upload photos to facebook from outside of facebook its self.

When I saw this I was quite excited. I’ve long know that a number of my friends read my blog through facebook because it is syndicated there, but conversely do not check out my photo gallery because you have to visit my site directly for it. What these new API libraries would allow me to do is to syndicate every photo uploaded to my gallery into facebook. I would even be able to create galleries with the same name as the ones on my own site.

I’m not sure when I will find the time to write such a plugin for my gallery but if and when I do I’ll be sure to shout it from the rooftops.

    They should make RSS feeds for pictures too, so that you can link a photo gallery on your site producing RSS feeds to some sort of photo/blog thing on facebook.

    I would say the API lacks detailed description of what the each method does. I had to implemented something recently which matches exactly with what Kieran said. I had a tough time developing it. I would again blame it to the documentation Facebook has put up. After a lot of ordeal I was able to get it up and running, in case anyone wants to know what I did they may click here, and save themselves from a lot of pain in case they already haven’t got it running. The code is written in php.
