Photos - Easy Upload to Facebook

I snapped a picture, expanded to view it, then I told it to upload to Facebook. In seconds it was on my Facebook wall, just as if I'd uploaded it from my laptop to Facebook.

I'd heard people say you could upload photos to Facebook right from the Palm Pre. I'd seen the button to do it, but I hadn't tried it till today. I decided to try it this afternoon while my little boy was eating a Popsicle. I snapped a picture, expanded to view it, then I told it to upload to Facebook. In seconds it was on my Facebook wall, just as if I'd uploaded it from my laptop to Facebook.

I find this feature very interesting since there is no real Facebook app for the Pre. It seems they were thinking ahead by incorporating photo uploads and contact syncing with one of the most popular social networking sites of our time.

Here is the photo, in full size, as uploaded to Facebook. The quality is outstanding for a cell phone!
