Photos/Videos uploaded to Facebook set as private?

Hello!

 

Whenever I upload pictures or videos to Facebook from my Nokia Lumia 920, they are set as private and nobody can see them unless I go onto a computer and make them public. How do I change this so that my pictures and videos are automatically set so that my friends can see the pictures and videos?

 

Thanks!

have you checked the Settings in the Facebook app that is available from the Store? I remember seeing the settings in there....

Use the on-device web browser (set to desktop version) to log on to full web site Facebook and check your default settings. My phone listens to my settings.

From a computer, go to your Facebook Account. Click on Settings ... choose account settings ... then look for "Apps" in the lefthand column. Scroll down to the bottom of the list. You will see "Old Version of Facebook for Mobile" ... Click PUBLIC on that setting. It solved my problem.

Yep. Same problem. If you're taking a photo to share, do it from within the Facebook app, and change the security setting of the photo status update before posting.
