I have been uploading photos using iPhoto '09 to my Facebook account for years.  Just a couple of days ago I started receiving a message box "Do you want to set up iPhoto to publish to Facebook?" when I click on the Facebook icon.  If I go ahead with the button "Setup" it opens another small box that is simply my Facebook page.  So, it is logged in but the page is useless as I cannot configure anything with respect to iPhoto.  I have logged out and tried setup again but that does not work.  I also went as far as to download the Facebook uploader plugin that works via the Export function.  This partially works but my photos are not viewable by my friends even though it says they should be.  Does anyone know why the Facebook upload function stopped working all of a sudden and how to fix it?  I am using iPhoto '09 version 8.1.2 (424).  Thanks.

iPhoto '08, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3)

    Hello,

     

    Thanks for the above info.

     

    I'm also using iPhoto '09. I've uploaded 3 albums previously to Facebook, the last about 2 months ago. That worked fine.

     

    Today, I tried uploading a new album, but ran into trouble: it doesn't seem to have finished uploading, so that there are broken links when I try to view some of the photos in Facebook. Worse, the process seems to have caused the same problem with some of my previous albums, because for some reason it tried to resync everything.

     

    I've tried the above multiple times for each of the albums, but that doesn't seem to fix anything. A couple of times, in fact, iPhoto has crashed. I'm mostly frustrated that it seems to have "broken" my older albums that had uploaded fine previously!

     

    Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer.

    This worked like a charm for me. Quickest computer-related fix I've had in a while!  Thanks! 

     

    (It still shouldn't be happening, but oh well.)
