There used to be an option to upload photos or post a status on Facebook by sending a mail to a specific address.

What's the process of finding this email address associated with my account?

(I'm not talking about the @facebook.com address associated with my account.)

  1. Click the settings gear at the top right of any Facebook page
  2. Click Settings
  3. Click the Mobile tab on the left side of the screen. Your post-by-email address is listed towards the bottom of your mobile information.



December 2013 update

This is the link you need


You also need to pass a user agent in your browser for a device that Facebook thinks doesn't support photo uploads

I use Chrome UA Spoofer

Before spoof

After Spoof

Old suggestion

Seems Facebook moved it (or is phasing it out?)

  1. Go to m.facebook.com in Internet Explorer or Firefox (other browsers may redirect to a different version)
  2. Select Photo
  3. Under Upload via Email you should see it

Apparently, there's an easier way to get that email. Simply go to video upload http://www.facebook.com/video/?upload and click the Mobile Video tab.

  • Yup, that's definitely easier.

  • @AlE. You were getting an error almost 2 years after my original reply. Facebook changes interface too often.
