MySpace Finally Supports Mobile Photo Uploads

Short of using a specialized application (or phone) of some sort, users of the social networking service MySpace did not have a way to easily upload photos from their mobile phones directly to their profiles until now. According to a recent entry on the MySpace blog, mobile photo uploads are finally supported. They noted this feature was “a long time coming.” Thanks, MySpace…what took you so long?

Mobile Photo Uploads

In order to use the new mobile photo upload feature, you must first log in to your MySpace account on the web to enable the setting. Once there, click on “My Account,” then click “Mobile.” You should see a section called “Send Photos From Your Phone.” From here, you can set a password and MySpace will generate a unique, personalized email address for you to add to your phone’s address book. The next time you take a mobile pic, you can just email it to MySpace using this address. The photo will show up in seconds. Unfortunately, there is no way to configure the mobile uploads to go into any particular album – they are all put into your “My Photos” album by default.

MySpace has had a mobile web site available for some time at m.myspace.com where you could interact with many of the service’s features. However, there was no option to upload photos from that site.

Blackberry App Coming In “A Few Weeks”

In the comments of the blog post, everyone’s friend “Tom” reveals some more news that wasn’t mentioned in the original post. In response to a user’s comment, Tom confirms that the MySpace Blackberry app announced last month is almost ready. Says Tom, the Blackberry app will be available “in a few weeks.” (Wow, that’s almost a year after Facebook released theirs!) Why is MySpace so slow to support mobile? Given Facebook’s growing popularity, you would think that MySpace would have had these features and apps ages ago.
