Is there a way to upload actual photos in an album to Facebook?

So sorry for my late response – simply missed this.

I assume you’re referring to using Google Photos to share to Facebook? If so, then yes – when you share multiple photos from the computer version of Google Photos to Facebook, it only shares the one cover photo and people need to click to see the rest. However, if you use Google photos from your phone, select multiple photos and share to facebook, all the individual photos get shared.

See the book “Learn Google Photos” in Chapter 9: Sharing under Facebook heading. As a member, you have access to the .pdf of the book.

Thanks, works okay to news feed but not to my Facebook blog. There I have to use a link which shows only a cover image. Oh well, trying to sawtooth to blogger anyway.

Facebook blog? What’s that?

Getting google photos to blogger is easy as long as your blog is using the same account as your Google Photos.

FB let’s one create a personal page where you post much like on news feed. The posts come out in reverse chronological order. You can get a link to the page to share through email or text. Recipients don’t need a FB account to view the page. Here is my blog,  https://www.facebook.com/footl…..sedotblog/

The problem is that multiple select doesn’t let you share to your personal page except by creating a link. 

In class you mentioned that blogger doesn’t support following notifications. FB personal page does even for non FB followers.

I learn something every day! Did not know about using Facebook for a blog. It looks like a page. I can see it without logging in to Facebook, but I don’t see how to follow it unless I’m logged in.

One little trick for multiple photos is to copy and paste. You still have to do it one-by-one, but for 3-4 photos its not too bad. 

  1. Go to your Google Photos library
  2. open a photo you want to post in Facebook, right-click and copy image
  3. To to your Facebook post, Right-click and paste
  4. Repeat 1-3 for each photo.

Yeah, Blogger just killed off the email notification feature – bummer.

You can use something like AWeber, or Mailchimp to set up a maillist and get it to automatically send out each blog post. A bit of work, but once its set – it keeps going automatically. They both have free levels that you’ll probably qualify for.

The other choice is Wordpress.com – that’s the free version, not self-hosted. Here’s info about email notifications for Wordpress.

Maybe only FB users can follow. Others just check when they want to see what’s new, if anything. If I get comfortable with blogger I’ll have to figure out a notification mechanism. My temporary solution is to post the link to my blogger post to my FB blog. Then at least my FB followers will get notification. 

Thanks for the copy/ paste tip.

My first blog was on WordPress. I wasn’t happy with it until I upgraded to a subscription version. For what I do I’ll stick with free tools.

Sounds good. I like the link in your FB posts for a good notification. You might want to put a post at the top (“pin to top”) that gives the address of your Blogger blog.
