Now you can say it all without saying a thing.
Now you can say it all without saying a thing.

If you’ve tired of using words to explain your feelings, in response to friends, Facebook will now let you use images.

The Verge reports that starting today the social network will let users upload images through their desktop and mobile browsers, when replying on a status. The option isn’t available in the mobile apps, yet – presumably those need to be updated to allow posting photos from their respective devices.

Brand pages also don’t have the functionality yet, for obvious reasons. Don’t want any of those unhappy users posting photos that might need censoring. There’s no word on whether it’ll be an option for page administrators to enable.

Facebook’s on a roll with adding new features, recently. Many users, however, are still waiting for the new Timeline and Graph Search features to be made available.

Eleven years ago Christo started writing about technology for one of South Africa's (then) leading computer magazines. His first review? A Samsung LCD monitor. Hey, it was hot news, back then. Nowadays he gets more excited about photography, cars, game consoles, and faster internet connections. He's sort of an Apple fan, but will take any opportunity to remind you about his Windows-powered home theatre PC and desire to own a vanilla Android tablet.   Currently uses: Apple 13-inch Macbook Pro with Retina Display, Apple iPhone 5, Microsoft Laser Mouse 6000, Audiofly AF78 Earphones, Xbox 360, Nikon D50.
