Posting Status Updates

You can easily post new status updates from the Facebook app, as well as post photos you've taken with your iPhone.

To post a status update, go to the News Feed screen and tap the Status button at the top of the screen. This displays the Status Update screen; use the onscreen keyboard to enter the text of your message; then tap the Share button to post the message.

To post a photo, go to the News Feed screen and tap the Photo button. You now have the option of taking a new photo (or video) or choosing an existing photo from your iPhone's photo library.

Figure 7 Select what type of photo to upload.

If you choose the former, your iPhone switches to camera mode; snap a picture, preview the picture, and then tap the Use button. When the next screen appears, tap the Write a Caption area to enter accompanying text for the picture; then tap the Upload button.
