i'm always uploading to Flickr and Facebook page and a few on my profile.
it works fine with FlickR but facebook ruined my images.
it softens my photos and the images looks not so neat. they way they look in lightroom/photoshop/Fl​ickr..
i even tried uploading bigger quality images/PNGs for web
they equally ruins them as well.
any spacific size/format that works well with Facebook?

Facebook isn't a place to display photographs, it's designed to show snapshots to your friends. I've always exported from Lightroom at 700px on the long edge for anything that I post on FB. No reason for a higher resolution. If I want to display a better version (like when I post an image here) then I post it on Flickr in a larger size, usually 1024.

First off, did anyone try my "Full Screen View" method?

Second, I'm not on FaceBook for photography, my years with POTN have taken care of that Internet "need"! I'm also not out to promote myself as a photographer or anything else. FaceBook has been a way of interacting with people, many are people who I have known over the years, others I've just gotten to "know" through our FaceBook interactions. And then, something pretty cool, is that there are people who I've "known" here in POTN, some very respectable photographers, who have also gotten active in FaceBook, and we all have a good time! Actually there is a group dedicating to "cycling" (bicycling that is) that, I believe, was started by someone here in POTN, has been active, and we have a good time!

And then, concerning photography: yeah, I've posted numerous photos that I think my FaceBook Friends might enjoy or maybe even be "touched" by...but, a couple years ago something very cool happened! A handful of us POTN members from this area (the Portland, OR metropolitan area) got together for a meetup in Portland, and we had a good time!

Well, as we reflected on the good photo ops here in the area, the subject of FaceBook came up, with the fact that a good number in our group were members of FaceBook. The idea of starting a FaceBook group for Pacific Northwest Photographers came up, we were agreeable, and we started the group, and you know what, it's been very active over the time, with, gosh, I just checked and there are now 896 members, active photographers who have shared some pretty amazing work! Hey, good things can come out of social networking!

As to issues with FaceBook "owning" some rights to your photos, well, yeah, they are spelled out when you sign on. In fact, if you look at the Terms and Conditions of pretty much any organized networking site as well as online photo contests, guess what you'll find?

Actually, I've never heard a case of FaceBook itself misusing or abusing members' photos, although I haven't delved into things much. But there are instances of sites (typically overseas) who have "misappropriated" the work of some photogs from FaceBook. Yeah, it does happen and if you alert FaceBook they can and do shut the site down. But it does happen.

But then, if you think about it, anything you post on the Web becomes "public", not for commercial use, but still, if I post a nice pic and someone wants to grab it as a desktop or make a nice 4x6 or 5x7 print for their own enjoyment, I don't have a problem with that. If you have a problem with that, then you should just keep your photos away from the Internet!

i'm totally agree with you
fb is a social network , n when we are posting at it, we want it to get saturated, we want people to tag it, we want them to share it to get maximum reach, then we shudnt be afraid of those stealer / social media itself. Considering we can watermark it as well.
Plus, for a hobbyist, one just want maximum people to see it. we dont care about them printing 4x6 or something right.
