What is the correct way to share an image and text to Facebook in android? e.g. picture with pre-populated text.
I realise that this is not possible from the native Android share intent as described here. As it can only take an image or a link not both.
Also I have tried using the facebook-sdk-3.14 with:
but I now realise this is for sharing links only.
I have also tried with:
but this is for sharing images only.
Is there something I am missing in the sdk? I am guessing it is not possible from FacebookDialog?
Will I need to go the route of creating my own app in facebook and my own open graph action? Ideally I am looking to not have a login button.
I have also seen similar questions but most are about the share intent or if it is the sdk it at least a year out of date and the solution is some thing similar to this:
Bundle parameters = new Bundle(); parameters.putString("message", category_item_name_desc.getText().toString()); parameters.putString("picture", categoryItemsModel.getImageUrl()); parameters.putString("caption", txtDescription_desc.getText().toString()); facebook.request("/me/feed", parameters, "POST");
Tried it through the Feed Dialog (WebDialog) but im getting a "error (#324) requires upload file", Any help would be great.
You can share your image on facebook, Twitter, and Gmail:
Bitmap b =BitmapFactory.decodeResource(getResources(),R.drawable.ic_launcher); Intent share = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_SEND); share.setType(“image/jpeg”); ByteArrayOutputStream bytes = new ByteArrayOutputStream(); b.compress(Bitmap.CompressFormat.JPEG, 100, bytes); String path = MediaStore.Images.Media.insertImage(getContentResolver(), b, “Title”, null); Uri imageUri = Uri.parse(path); share.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_STREAM, imageUri); startActivity(Intent.createChooser(share, “Select”));
