Facebook users often enjoy sharing photos with Facebook friends and family, but may find it less than convenient to upload photos directly from a computer. Photobucket is an online photo storage service that allows you to upload photos to your Facebook account quickly and easily. After you link your Photobucket and Facebook accounts, you can upload pictures to your Facebook album in a few minutes.
