Flickr and Facebook, they play nicely together. You just have to go through a couple steps. We're going to start out by going up here to our settings and just review our connection. We're going to go to Sharing & Extending. And yes, I have my Facebook connection established. If you haven't done that yet, it's very easy. What you'll have here, instead of edit, you'll have connect. So, you can click on connect and you authorize the teo to talk to each other.
Then once you do that that will change to edit, right here. And you do have one setting, Automatically share your public Flickr uploads anywhere, your Facebook updates are shown. I'm actually going to turn that off. You don't need to automatically do it. You can do it on a one by one basis, where you're only publishing the photos that you want to Facebook. So, uncheck that box, and I'm going to save it. And this is also the place where if you want to disconnect the two, you can do that right here. All right, so we're set up.
So, let's go back to our Photostream. And if I want to send a photo up, let's go down. I want to send up another flower shot. How about this shot right here? I want to put that on my Facebook page. I think this shot would look nice on Facebook. So I go to the sharing icon and I'm going to choose Facebook. So, the connection has been made, so it knows what I want to do and it knows where to put it. I can establish, this is something for my Friends or for Only Me. I want my friends to see it.
We can add a little description. And now I'll post. Okay, it's been shared, let's go ahead and go back to our Photostream here. Let's go over to the Facebook page. I'm going to refresh, and there it is, in all of it's glory, look at that. Very simple and I had put one up earlier. So, images from our Flickr Photostream or from sets within Flickr, can easily be posted to Facebook, once you establish the connection.
All you do is look for the share icon, choose Facebook, and you're set.
