Facebook Camera app problems on iPhone

Some of our readers might have installed Facebook’s new camera app on their iPhone and met a problem after denying the app your location, which is thanks to a necessity for Location Services to be turned on for access to photos stored on your device.

We received a few tips about this problem with one reader stating “I said no to giving the Facebook Camera app my location and now I cannot upload any photos I take“, and this is thanks to how iOS works when you want to use an API to select more than one photo, something you cannot do in the regular Facebook app for iPhone and iPad.

It’s worth pointing out that this issue has a workaround, which comes to us thanks to this article. You just need to make sure location permissions are turned off when you take photos with your iPhone camera, which means no GPS data is included with your photos and allows you to upload photos in Facebook Camera with no location data attached. Even when you have set Location Permissions on for the Facebook Camera app you can also decide whether to share a photos location at the time of uploading, so it shouldn’t be a massive problem if you’re the paranoid type when it comes to privacy.

Do you like the idea of your Facebook contacts knowing where you took photos, or do you have a problem with sharing your location on Facebook? There have been times when people don’t want others to know the time they took a photo or where they were, which could be because you weren’t meant to be at that place at that time. Let us know if you’ve had any problems with the Facebook Camera app, and we’d also love to hear your first impressions.
