How to share photos to facebook?

  1. #11

    I can check on my work pc, because it's currently running Windows 8 Pro. But I cannot check until tomorrow as the machine is currently turned off.

    This is damn frustrating if each version is going to have such subtle differences as to what they do and don't do. I've spent way too much time trying to figure this out, and it could just be that the enterprise version leaves out such a small detail. I truly hope that is not it.

    So, get this.

    If I pic a picture stored on my local computer, People is not in the sharing tab
    If however I pic a picture from skydrive, still from within the Photos app, People DOES appear in the sharing app.
    If I pic a picture from Facebook, still from within the Photos app, PEOPLE does NOT appear.

    That's it! You are correct, I just realized I did select a picture from Skydrive on my Pro install because I had disabled local pictures to be displayed. I've now tried again with a local picture and I get the same thing as you. A head scratcher for sure as to why it would work that way, unless it's a bug because it really doesn't make sense.

    Well, that's a relief. Thanks for sticking it out with me tonight while we tried to narrow this down.

    It's almost got to be a bug
