Desktop Apps Can Upload Photos to Facebook

Facebook announced on its Facebook Developers blog that desktop applications can now upload photos using the social-networking site’s open-source library, which is based on Adobe AIR technology.

Justin Bishop, a software engineer on Facebook’s Platform team, posted:

The new version of Facebook for Adobe AIR lets you drag and drop photos directly into the application. Here’s a video showing how a user can do this.

You can download the open source library so you can start building your desktop application. You can see an example of the library in use by downloading the application source code. David Cohen is editor of Adweek's Social Pro Daily.
