Can I move pix from Flickr to FaceBook?

I chose Flickr to avoid the google earth embed thing so people couldn't look me up. And I've honestly tried to find the answer myself over 2 hours now. Giving up if someone in here can't help me. FB will just have to do w/o my pix.

But it is kinda stupid for a group admin on a pet charity page not to have any pix even of my own dogs.

1. Hi IA,

Seems like you should be able to post a made-for-FB link from Flickr into FB, but I don't use either so I'll leave the definitive answer to someone who knows better. In the meantime maybe you can simply download pics from Flickr back to your hard drive picture folder and then upload them to FB from that?

2. Or try this, from the Flickr help forum 8 months ago::

I want to pick which images will post to Facebook. How do I accomplish this?

If you use the Share feature on the photo page, the Facebook share will actually upload the photo from Flickr to an album on your Facebook page. It's not automated (you will have to actually use the Share feature on each photo) but it gives you the control you are looking for.

4. Thanks; my main concern is to avoid the google geo locater embed usually sneaked in by many services

After being harrassed and even stalked, I'd rather make any such persons in the future go to a lot more work to find me.

5. So sorry to hear you're being harassed IA . . .

I hadn't heard! It sounds horrible. I don't know where the geo locater gets embedded but there might be a switch or setting somewhere that would let you turn it off. If it's in the .jpg files try saving them as .png from MS paint. But really this sounds like a police matter or FBI matter. If the police in your town are lousy maybe there's a community legal aid service that could put you in touch with a lawyer who could help out?

6. Thanks, but the police AND FBI prefer to wait until something's already happened.

No legal help either. This happened on another website anyway; I just learned the guy got my location from geo locator and reverse phone lookup. But he hasn't been bothering me of late. I tried to scare him worse than he was scaring me, which was plenty. I feel very confident it wouldn't be tolerated on DU.

7. That sounds pretty scary.

So LEO hasn't done a damn thing? That's adding insult to injury. If you don't have security bars it might be a good idea to shell out a couple of grand which I know you don't have but maybe you could convince your landlord to take it out of future rent? And until you get bars I'd get a very big dog or maybe two or three. Also deadbolts for each door. Find somebody who'll do it if the landlord won't. At a minimum you need deadbolts on your doors, secure window locks, and bright porch lights front and back.

But I have a feeling you already know this . . .

8. Thank you, my dear true friend.

No, LEO thinks it's funny and ridicules anything I tell them as possibly untrue and certainly nothing worth their trouble. I wrote you a lengthier explanation but won't repeat it here, because I've squawked about it so often on DU that a lot of people are probably tired of it here too. But don't worry, I'm a tough old bird. No point in having window bars even if I could afford them because this house was built in 1915 around a sturdy 1848 slave cabin, and it would be the easiest thing in the world for anyone to break into no matter what. My 16-year-old chows died in '12, but now I have a couple of smaller barkers, and people know I pay attention. The mini beagle/pom wouldn't be any protection, but believe it or not a Jack Russell Terrierist has all the protective instincts of a bigger dog, and they're insanely fearless. My smooth-coat JRT is well over AKC allowable height, and she'd doubtless bite anyone she considered dangerous. The first time she saw and heard fireworks last summer, she'd charge the fence sounding like a pack of mad dogs every time they went off or sailed overhead. Molly cowered under my feet, but Brigid flew into a rage.

Most people don't know I traded my extended double-barrel Colt that looked like a sawed-off shotgun to my new handyman for labor, but I let people know when I bought it, so they'll think I still have it. I also keep wasp spray by the bed in lieu of pepper spray. The two dogs sleep in a spindle baby bed next to me, so there'd be no danger of their getting caught in side spray. Most lots here are about a quarter acre, and asleep or awake, the dogs know if anyone even walks by on the street.
