Upload photos on Facebook using PHP

Posted: February 14, 2013 in Facebook

If you have strived for the uploading photos on Facebook via your site, then you are at right place. On demand of my readers I have written this article to show how to upload images on Facebook via PHP. First of all you need to create a Facebook app. I will not tell you how to do that. Get the appId and secret code of your application from facebook. This appId and secret code is necessary to connect you site to the application on Facebook. This code uses the Facebook.php class that can be downloaded from here.

WebSpeaks.in | Upload images to Facebook

$appId, //your facebook application id
‘secret’ => $secret, //your facebook secret code
‘cookie’ => true
));

$user = $facebook->getUser();

if(is_null($facebook->getUser()))
{
header(“Location:{$facebook->getLoginUrl(array(‘req_perms’ => ‘user_status,publish_stream,user_photos’))}”);
exit;
}
/******************Configuration options***********************/

if($_SERVER[‘REQUEST_METHOD’] ==’POST’){
$img = realpath($_FILES[“pic”][“tmp_name”]);
// allow uploads
$facebook->setFileUploadSupport(“http://” . $_SERVER[‘SERVER_NAME’]);
// add a status message
$photo = $facebook->api(‘/me/photos’, ‘POST’,
array(
‘source’ => ‘@’ . $img,
‘message’ => ‘This photo was uploaded via http://www.WebSpeaks.in’
)
);

echo ‘
