If you do not want to share a photo with all of your Facebook friends, you can send the photo to just one person. Facebook's messaging system allows you to share media such as photos and videos with select people without displaying the media to others.
When you send a photo to a Facebook friend, the friend can download and save the image to their computer. You can send one image at a time through Facebook's messaging system.
