MMS Photo Upload to Facebook

Updated on Friday, February 24, 2017
Does Facebook now hate MMS? For the past couple of weeks every time I tried to send a photo I got the following error message:

"You have uploaded from an unrecognized address. For instructions on how to upload photos to Facebook, go to http://www.facebook.com/mobile"

I got this sending to both [email protected] and 32665. The referenced page is no help at all, and my phone number is registered with Facebook Mobile.

It turns out that there's a new secret email address. On the Facebook site click the icon to share a photo:

Facebook MMS Upload Step 1

Then click Upload a Photo:

Facebook MMS Upload Step 2

Then click upload via email:

Facebook MMS Upload Step 3

Your personal email address is finally revealed and can be used to send a photo via MMS.

Facebook - update your error message to point this out!
