I love to add my photos to Facebook and Twitter, especially when I am on vacation. Even though I may get sarcastic, jealous replies regarding my getaway photos, I still love to share them. I also upload pictures of my kids for distant family members to see. Sometimes, I just like to share cute photos of my pets. 

If you have an account on Facebook, Twitter, or Flickr there is an easy way to upload your photos from your iDevice to your choice of the social media sites.

Here's how:

1. Go to your Camera Roll and select the photo(s) you'd like to share, then tap on the box with the up arrow in the lower left corner of your device. 


2. Tap Next in the upper right corner.

3. You will be given several icons (slide right to left to see all of them) and choose where you would like to upload your photo. Besides the social media sites, you can also share via email or Messages. Tap on the icon where you want to share the photo. 


From this menu, you can also assign a photo to a contact, use the photo as wallpaper on your iDevice, print the photo if you're connected to a wireless printer, share with another iDevice user with AirPlay, start a slideshow, or copy and paste your photo to another app, such as Pages.
